Dimitar Kutmanov is a freelance filmmaker currently based in Sofia.
Currently he is working on the preproduction of his short film 'BREAD', which received support from The Bulgarian National Film Centre and the National Culture Fund.
Born in Plovdiv, Bulgaria in 1988, Dimitar showed interest in art from an early age. In 2012 Dimitar earned a BA(Hons) First Class degree in Film Studies at Anglia Ruskin University. There he started experimenting with 16mm film – a format that he favours ever since. His graduation film ‘A
Taste of Water’ was the highest-rated project in the history of the course.
In 2014 Dimitar completed a Masters course in Film Directing at Screen Academy Scotland where he wrote and directed a series of short films.
His graduation film 'ECCE HOMO' has been selected for a number of international film festivals and has won awards in Bulgaria, Germany and South Korea.
Dimitar believes that cinema is an authentic art form and it is not destined to simply entertain but to nurture the spirit. For him the filmmaker is as an individual loaded the with the heavy burden of his vocation - to serve the noblest of human sentiments. Dimitar perceives film as a shared yearning for the intangible harmony and a means for questioning the human condition.
