Summary/Abstract: Following the political changes from 1989 on wards, social criticism and comic shorts are no longer the major leading models in Bulgarian animated film. The paper focuses on the modes used by filmmakers to globalise their messages in an environment of cutting back on financing and practically nonexistent market. As is the case in the rest of the former communist countries, in Bulgaria too the development of modernist styles has been disrupted, struggling desperately for its rare moments of flourishing. But then again, the new generations of animators are making their fresh contribution to avant-garde stylistics, reviving and developing a singular symbolic cinematic language to reflect situations of a crisis and transition.
