On April 9th, a fourth job fair was held, this time in Varna, for displaced people from Ukraine who fled to Bulgaria to escape the war in their home country. Those who were forced to evacuate their homes were able to attend the event organized by the U.S. Embassy in Sofia, the America for Bulgaria Foundation, the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria, and Nu Boyana Film Studios.
I’ve recently been called by reporters from both the Hollywood Reporter and Variety asking me my opinion on how the Ukrainian situation is affecting the business of movie-making in Bulgaria.
It was a whirlwind to organize but we did it! Having run FilmForge for two years prior to the pandemic, one would think it would be plug and play, but so many things needed dusting off and other things needed a complete overhaul.

An amazing project that we started in 2019. Stay tuned for the interesting and useful master classes and trainings that Nu Boyana Stunt Academy will offer!
This is a very special project of ours and frankly we have thought about making it a reality for quite some time. Action and stunts have always been amongst the most cherished ingredients of the films we shoot. And we have always worked with great talents in the stunt world.
It’s not only the width and depth of our pool, or the modernity of the building that we are proud of. It’s also the great teamwork and talent of all our colleagues. They can design and do all the engineering for your idea from scratch.
Exclusive video footage from the filming of “The Outpost” in Bulgaria was shown in Nick Paton Walsh’s report for CNN: ‘The Outpost’: The horror of Afghanistan brought to Hollywood
The movie “211” starring Nicolas Cage was inspired by one of the longest and bloodiest bank heists. The title is the American police code for robbery, which reveals the main part of the plot. A soon to be retired police officer “Mike Chandler”, played by Nicholas Cage finds himself unprepared and outgunned, as he comes across a daring bank heist carried out by a team of fearless, heavily armed and highly trained men.
The action-packed thriller film was entirely serviced at Nu Boyana Film Studios. In the post-production of such a busy film, sound plays a pivotal role in the storytelling and production value.
On a warm summer’s evening, the Danny Lerner Memorial Theatre quickly filled up with students, mentors and producers, parents and friends. It’s the 31st May and Nu Boyana Film Studios is hosting the graduation ceremony for the FilmForge classes.
