Summary/Abstract: The article explores the first attempts of the Communist authorities to use cinema as a means of propaganda. The establishment of the new power and the change in the political situation after September 9 1944 also required a radical change in the cultural life of the country, including cinema. Regarding it as an art that enjoys widespread popularity, the Communist Party makes legal and other normative changes to establish full control over the distribution and screening of films in Bulgaria, and through them to impose and popularize its ideology.
