This website is an homage to a collective work. I dedicate it to my team, my partners and my fellow directors and producers of cinema

SOFILM was one of the first independent Bulgarian production companies. We produced, co-produced* and accompanied more than 40 French film productions.
We provided an opportunity and represented a qualified and conclusive alternative. This mission meant a lot to me. *(with Peter Popzlatev, we initiated the first Franco-Bulgarian co-production)

Through the CLASSE LIBRE Foundation we organized a projection of Bulgarian films in Paris and contemporary art exhibitions in Sofia. We had welcomed many French cultural institutions in Bulgaria, among which were ARTE, LE FRESNOY, SUNNY SIDE and ART PRESS.

Working with Charles Tesson allowed me to program and bring to life the CLASSE LIBRE, a cultural rendez-vous for moviegoers in Sofia.

It was a space for critical and aesthetic thinking with more than 80 personalities coming to share their passion for the cinema in its diversity.

I thank you all,
Patrick Sandrin
