The Mayor of Sofia, Yordanka Fandakova met with the Bulgarian actor from the Oscar winning film "Green Book", Dimitar Marinov.

Congratulations on the award, the recognition, and that you made us proud at the Oscars, said Mayor Fandakova. She praised the actor for his words to the young people to follow their dreams, to be brave and to work to achieve them.

During the 23rd Sofia Film Fest the two of them talked about the development of the film and film industry in the city. Fandakova invited Dimitar Marinov to participate in a project related to Sofia, as well as in the future Centre for Contemporary Art "The Heating Plant", which Sofia Municipality is establishing.

Sofia Municipality supports international film festivals that show the latest of the film industry and meet the audience in Sofia with the contemporary artists, said Mayor Fandakova. Together with “Sofia Film Fest” and “Sofia Meetings”, the municipality supports also the Sofia Independent Film Festival, the documentary film festival "In the Palace", "Cinemania" and "CineLibri", as well as the new initiatives "Meetings of Young European Cinema" and outdoor film shows in the inter-block spaces of 10 metropolitan residential areas, united under the name "Block Cinema".
