Bulgarian-Macedonian co-production shortlisted for 70th Cannes Film Festival


Directions by Bulgarian director Stephan Komandarev, a Bulgarian, Macedonian and German co-production, has been shortlisted to be part of Un Certain Regard, the prestigious programme of the 70th Cannes Film Festival, set to take place in May.

The film is co-produced by Bulgaria’s Argo Film, Germany’s Aktis Film and Macedonia’s Sektor Film. It is funded by the Bulgarian National Film Center, the Regional Film Fund MDM, Macedonia’s Film Agency and Eurimages.

Directions is a modern tale telling the stories of a group of people whose lives intertwine in six taxi cabs within 24 hours. It is also a free interpretation of Anton Chekhov’s short story Grief, according to the director.

Komandarev wrote the script together with the up-and-coming Bulagrian playwright  Simeon Ventsislavov.
