FINAL  REPORT  

   
 

 
 

 
 
The  first  KidsFest  Sofia  took  place  at  NuBoyana  Film  Studios,  on  SUNDAY  28  June  with  nearly  1000  visitors  
enjoying  an  extraordinary  moment.    
The   Studios   gave   us   the   perfect   setting   to   let   children   dream,   have   fun,   try   new   things,   mingle,   play   &  
learn.   Creativity,   curiosity,   imagination   with   ever-­‐present   underlying   social   and   intercultural   purposes.    
KidsFest   Sofia   invited   many   groups,   orphans,   SOS   villages,   Roma   children,   refugees,   small   groups   of  
autistic  and  otherwise  handicapped  children,  Bulgarian  kids  with  their  families,  foreigners…  a  happy  mixed  
crowd.  The  children  became  multi-­‐cultural  time-­‐travellers  and  got  lots  of  inspiration  to  create  a  world  of  
their  own  -­‐  KidsFest’s  global  message  came  true:  Children  build  the  world’s  patrimony  today,  the  cultural  
heritage  of  tomorrow.  As  the  NuBoyana  Studio  publishes:  “the  beauty  of  movie  magic  and  all  children’s  &  
parents’  fantasies  combined!“.  Many  months  of  preparation,  an  army  of   volunteers,  countless  partners,  
sponsors,   in-­‐kind   contributors,   artists   performing   pro-­‐bono   joined   forces   to   make   this   day   an  
unforgettable  moment  in  each  visitors’  life.  The  NuBoyana  team  from  bottom  to  top  worked  many  extra-­‐
hours,  the  costume  department,  props,  technicians,  electricians,  interns,  all  were  there  with  a  big  smile,  
dedicated  to  this  one  aim:  The  children  must  feel  like  movie-­‐stars.    
 
KidsFest  Sofia  is  supported  by  the  Mayor  of  Sofia  Ms.  Jordanka  
Fandakova  and  the  Mayor’s  deputy   Todor  Chobanov  opened  the  
festival  with  a  speech  dedicated  to  the  children  and  declared  the  
municipality’s   intention   to   make   this   pilot   project   a   new  
tradition  in  Bulgaria’s  capital,  right  in  the  center  of  the  city.    
 
KidsFest  Sofia  was  fun  for  all,  children  and  adult  visitors,  parents  
and   chaperons   were   as   fascinated   as   the   kids   themselves   to  
discover   real   movie   sets,   the   London   street   with   a   dream-­‐car  
exhibition,   “New   York”,   props   all   around   the   park   like   a   treasure  
island   of   dreams   and   imagination…   All   workshops   were  
functioning   in   parallel,   those   who   left   the   Kids-­‐Stage   with   the  
BonBon   Singers   &   the   Bulgarian   Cosmic   Voices   amongst   many  
others,   enjoyed   crafts,   arts,   yoga,   sports,   science,   fun   maths,  
Picasso-­‐workshop,   medal-­‐making,   water   games   with   the   fire-­‐
brigade’s   animation,   chess,   doll-­‐making,   architecture,   origami,  
face  painting,  fitness,  hip-­‐hop,  games,  kermes,  apple  computers,  
“selfies”   with   movie   characters,   fantasy   characters   of   the  
Costume  society,  or  the  calm  oasis  of  the  flying  books  corner.  
 
The   Epicenter   of   the   KidsFest   was   the   KidsStage   -­‐   an   open  
platform   for   all   talents   -­‐   children   and   performers,   champions,  
new-­‐comers,   amateurs   and   professionals.   The   Magic   of   the  
KidsStage  was  brought  to  life  by  the  fabulous  animator  Stefan  of  
the   Duo   Platschkov   -­‐   Splash   Circus.   Performances   by   The  
BonBon   singers,   Poli   genova,   Splash   Circus,   the   famous   Levski-­‐
Iliana  Gymnasts,  Yoga  Style  and  the  Cosmic  Voices  of  Bulgaria,  with  many  delightful  and  original  children's  
performances   in   between.   Sweet   pleasures   provided   by   Haribo,   Nesquick   and   Florina.   Plamen   Tzanev   and  
the  Pulsio  printers  provided  all  the  printed  work,  Sofiyask  Voda  supplied  waterfountains,  fairy-­‐tale  books  
and   the   well-­‐known   Drop   &   Droplet   characters,   Raiffeisen   bank   offered   hundreds   of   T-­‐shirts   for   all  
visitors,   Mr.   Bricolage,   Novotel  and  Sofia  Accueil  the  necessary  workshop  materials.  Besides  the   Picasso  
workshop,   the   Spanish   Embassy   took   care   of   culinary   culture   and   gave   a   rich   Spanish   buffet   to   the  
hardworking  team.  Numerous  contributions,  generosity  and  many  hands  behind  the  scenes  brought  this  
project  to  life.  
 
KidsFest   Sofia’s   carries   a   message   of   inclusion   and   gives  
children   an   opportunity   to   experience   responsibility   in   some  
issues   that   affect   sustainable   development.   The   effervescent  
positive   energy   this   event   creates   combines   in   sustainable    

synergy  for  future  generations.  KidsFest  is  a  platform  for  young  people  to  express  their  visions:  one  good  
example   is   voluntarism.   The   best   representatives   of   an   active   socially   engaged   modern   Bulgarian  
generation  were  our  fantastic  volunteer  groups  of  the  Red  Cross  and  the  Bulgarian  scouts  (bravo!).    
 
The   highlight   at   the   end   of   the   day   was   the   Grand   Finale   offered   by  
NuBoyana   Studios:   A   Horse-­‐show   with   international   stunt   artists     of  
Krassimir  Simeonov.  
 
Background   Info:   The   KidsFest   Sofia   is   inspired   by   Kid's   festival   Sarajevo  
(www.kidsfest.ba),  the  largest  Youth  Festival  in  the  Balkans,  which  for  twelve  
years   has   brought   together   more   than   40,000   children   annualy   throughout  
Bosnia   and   Herzegovina,   and   which   received   the   patronage   of   UNESCO   in  
2015.   In   her   official   letter   Unesco   Director   General   Irina   Bokova  
congratulates   “this   initiative   which   offers   an   opportunity   to   promote  
respect  for  cultural  diversity,  and  to  foster  a  spirit  of  mutual  understanding  
among   children   and   youth,   who   are   sources   of   creative   energy   and  
meaningful  actors  of  peace”…    
 
ViaKult   Office   Berlin   launched   KidsFest  
international   as   a   global   project   which    
regroups   different   KidsFests   around   the  
world,   functioning   according   to   the   same  
concept   promoting   peace   in   people's  
minds,   especially   the   younger   generation.  
KidsFest   gains   significance   by   actively  
involving  the  civil  society,  large  numbers  of  
local   and   international   organizations,   embassies,   artists,   NGOs,   schools,  
media.   Know-­‐how   and   expertise   have   been   built   up   within   a   decade   of  
working   with   international   organizations   like   the   EU,   UNICEF,   USAID,   Save  
the   Children   Norway,   OSCE,   ICRC,   UNHCR   and   UNESCO.   KidsFest   is   a   label  
standing   for   quality   and   universal   values,   a   light-­‐weight   project   with   a  
flexible  format,  a  showroom  for  inspired  people.
