Summary/Abstract: The new Bulgaria animated film and use of modern technologies could be treated in several aspects: at a level of choices of animation techniques to build a film work, at a technological level and a mode of production as well as a distribution pattern. Most directors would not leave technologies behind, but rather introduce these as an active and major component of the very essence of the film. Hence the trend of diversity and innovation in technologies comes to life in Bulgarian animated film. For the first time for years now, Bulgaria’s animated domain was ‘stirred up’ by exhibitions on a particular film or anniversaries occasioned by events in Bulgaria’s film history. The comic novel Rabies by scriptwriter Sybilla Koritareva and artist Ivan Koritarev broke the ice in transferring a work to various media formats and situated in a field close to animation. It was released as a glossy quadrilingual publication (in English, French, German and Bulgarian and the following editions were by Bulgarian artists as well). Rabies is available as computer games for iPhone, iPad and iPod, a video game soundtrack by a Bulgarian performer once again.
