Sofia International Film Festival, launched on Friday, is screening filmmaker Dea Kulumbegashvili's award-winning feature debut Beginning as part of its programme.

In two screenings on Tuesday and May 6, the film that earned prizes from juries at San Sebastián and Trieste Film Festivals - along with other events - will now be seen by viewers tuning in to the Bulgarian celebration of cinema.

The Georgian-French co-production was dubbed a "miracle movie" by organisers of the Sofia event, who on Tuesday introduced the work to their audiences.
