Welcome to Sofia Art Film Awards, a place that celebrates art, filmmaking, and artists. We believe that every artist is equal, and should be treated equally with the same respect. With this thought in our minds, we created SAFA and our only judging criteria are a project's artistic quality and potential.

Our quarter-annual competition (Summer/Autumn/Winter/Spring) are open for all genres. Submit now and be part of SUMMER edition.

If you believe that you are an excellent filmmaker with an amazing inner artistic quality, and an exciting project, SAFA is the place for you.

We accept feature films, short films, documentaries, animations, experimental, music videos, and web series of any genre. Each month our judges, watch and rate the submitted films. The Best Films are announced as the Winners and Honorable Mentions of the season.
