Our Judges say:

An innovative urban ski short set to a backdrop of decay. Beautiful cinematography and satisfying editing – 5 minutes well spent.

Zena Toscani

An extraordinary and beautiful ski movie featuring the most impressive brutalist architecture you can imagine. Really good looking short film!

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

Parked at the peak of Mount Buzludzha seems to be the resting skeleton of a U.F.O. This massive structure looming in the distance sits quietly, nearly forgotten, as the inside slowly deteriorates. Once a great monument commemorating Bulgaria’s freedom from Ottoman rule, and the birth place of the Bulgarian Communist Party. Today it is merely a beautiful structure abandoned by its government in an effort to forget their past, however, the people don’t let go so easily as above the main entrance reads “NEVER FORGET YOUR PAST” in bold red letters.
