Summary/Abstract: Omnibus films are not a strong concept; they would more often than not intertwine with anthology film, package film, portmanteau film, revue films, compilation films, episodiccinema. Omnibus films bring together the contributions of two or more filmmakers, they are made up of short episodes, usually linked to each other just by a theme, place, event, idea, subject, person. The different episodes are shot by different directors. According to the researcher David Diffrient, omnibus films nowadays are international co-productions, produced and distributed in a different way, changing the perception of authorship. In Bulgarian practice, such a feature omnibus film is only Generation: Lost & Found, and animation film omnibus, Father. Kamen Kalev participated in the international project The Bridges of Sarajevo only as a director, without Bulgarian co-production. Without foreign participation, but on a similar basis as omnibus films, the documentary episodes 15, animation Mark and Verse (one and two), and the anthology feature film 8’19’’ were made.
