‘Cinema Extremists’ is about Bulgarian pioneers who paved the ‘thorny’ path of Bulgarian film. Each has an extremely interesting fate; in our story, we follow their biographies to a certain extent, but mostly we reveal their tireless work and indomitable desire to make movies, the difficulties, the excitement.

BOYA HARIZANOVA was born in Ruse, Bulgaria. She studied Journalism at St Kliment Ohridski University in Sofia, before graduating in Film Direction from the Krastyo Sarafov National Academy for Theatre and Film Arts. In 2023, she was awarded her PhD and became a lecturer at the Academy. She has made four documentaries and three short feature films—all of them award winners at national and international film festivals.
