Written by on February 24, 2017 in Culture, Latest, Leisure - No comments

British actor Rupert Everett will hit Bulgarian soil for the Sofia Film Fest in March of 2017, the festival announced. On March 19th, he will come to a special screening of his latest feature film entitled “Finding Altamira”, which will take place at Sofia’s Lumière Cinema on March 19th, 2017.

“Finding Altamira” was released as “Altamira” in Spain. Apart from Rupert Everett, it features Antonio Banderas and many others. The film, directed by Hugh Hudson, tells the story of the discovery of the famous stone age cave paintings in the Caves of Altamira. The plot also includes the aftermath of the discovery, during which a big controversy developed, involving religious and scientific leaders.

On, “Finding Altamira” actually got a pretty disappointing rating of 5.8 out of 10 (on February 24th, 2017 with 1107 evaluations).

Rupert Everett, who is also a writer, has been part of countless big cinema movies, including “My Best Friend’s Wedding” (1997), “Shakespeare in Love” (1998), “Inspector Gadget” (1999) as well as “The Chronicles of Narnia” (2005).

Everett is openly gay and an activist for the rights of homosexuals.

The Sofia Film Fest (SFF) was founded in 1997 and has become one of the most important events of this kind in Europe. Since the beginning, some 1,600 films have been screened at the festival and 1,000 prominent guests have been welcomed. As one of the largest cultural event series in Bulgaria, the SFF is being organized by Art Fest, in cooperation with Sofia Municipality, the Bulgarian Ministry of Culture and others. Stefan Kitanov is the festival director.
