Movies: Best Movies in Bulgarian(български език)

Bulgarian ( bu(u)l-GAIR-ee-ən; български език, bŭlgarski ezik, pronounced [ˈbɤɫɡɐrski]) is an Eastern South Slavic language spoken in Southeast Europe, primarily in Bulgaria. It is the language of the Bulgarians. Along with the closely related Macedonian language (collectively forming the East South Slavic languages), it is a member of the Balkan sprachbund and South Slavic dialect continuum of the Indo-European language family. The two languages have several characteristics that set them apart from all other Slavic languages, including the elimination of case declension, the development of a suffixed definite article, and the lack of a verb infinitive. They retain and have further developed the Proto-Slavic verb system (albeit analytically). One such major development is the innovation of evidential verb forms to encode for the source of information: witnessed, inferred, or reported. It is the official language of Bulgaria, and since 2007 has been among the official languages of the European Union. It is also spoken by the Bulgarian historical communities in North Macedonia, Ukraine, Moldova, Serbia, Romania, Hungary, Albania and Greece. ()

Bulgarian is spoken in Albania, Russia, Turkey, Serbia, Ukraine, Romania, Greece, Bulgaria, North Macedonia and Moldova and 679 movies (between 1913 and 2024) with this language have been recorded so far. Most of these movies were shot in Bulgaria (613). Popular genres for Bulgarian movies are Drama (413), Comedy (122) and Documentary (55). Attraction (2018), Eastern Plays (2009), Bai Ivan 2 (2022), Reunion 2 (2022) and Relationology (2020) are among the best known & most successful Bulgarian movies.
