"It was very interesting for us to see how Bulgarian traditions become more accessible and understandable for children when they are actively involved in making films. There is nothing more inspiring than seeing students easily and happily acquire new knowledge. The animations are educational and can be used as an aid during the lessons with the children in school. "- says Reneta Traikova, President of NISHAN Association. The free screening of 14 September 2019 is suitable for children, parents and anyone who wants to touch Bulgarian traditional culture in a non-standard way.


The project was implemented by NISHAN through the largest socially responsible initiative of Lidl Bulgaria - You and Lidl for a Better Life, in partnership with the Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation and the Bulgarian Donation Forum. During the 2020 year, the association will work on a similar project - "From Byala to Rousse - stories about unknown Greyhounds + animated series made by children", funded by NFK.
