Flying Away – Simeon Tsonchev’s nature-documentary film on Bulgaria’s wild bird life – will be screened at 56 cities within the framework of Naturall – an educational project by Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds and Prosveta Publishing House, financially supported by EU’s LIFE programme.
Flying Away’s journey around the country started from the city of Ruse on 20 Sepetmeber 2017. Since then more than 850 viewers from Belogradchik, Tryavna, Sapareva Banya, Montana, Nevestino, Dryanovo, Knezha, Kyustendil, Sofia, Sredets, Botevgrad, Svoge, Dragoman, Belene, Radomir, Panagyurishte, Stara Zagora and Karlovo have had the chance of learning more about Bulgaria’s incredible diversity of wild birds.
NaturALL is an educational project which aims at promoting the Natura 2000 ecological network by stimulating positive attitudes towards nature among children at secondary school and among teachers, farmers and hunters. The travelling cinema screenings have definitely attracted viewers’ interest. Flying Away’s creators are glad their film has made new friends of bird life among its youngest viewers.
