Bulgarian short film “Pale Blue Dot” is one of the 12 finalists at the CineSpace 2022 international competition, a collaboration between NASA and Houston Cinema Arts Society that offers filmmakers around the world a chance to share their works inspired by, and using, actual NASA imagery.
“Pale Blue Dot” was directed by Mitko Stafidov and produced by Handplayed.
The film recounts the story of a man and a woman watching planet Earth from a spaceship while expecting a crucial decision about the future of mankind. The parts are played by British-New Zealander Michelle Huirama and British-Mexican David Aguirre Firth, selected among 200 candidates.
Films can be of any genre and on any topic. Film entries must be no more than 10 minutes and at least 10% of the film must use NASA archival footage to create unique NASA-inspired film masterpieces.
Finalists and winners may be screened at other film festivals across the country, in schools, libraries, museums, on NASA TV and even onboard the International Space Station.
Houston Cinema Arts Festival will continue until November 17.
