Summary/Abstract: The common state of the press market in Bulgaria in the last 25 years shows that a very small circle of journals pay attention to cinema. The political, economical and social events from the beginning of the transition period from communism to democracy expel culture from the pages of the press. Media market itself goes through a critical transformation. By the end of the 1990s the advent of Internet and its widespread use as a main source of information was still a Science Fiction shimmering dream in Bulgaria. Throughout the decade printed publications were still the main force dominating the media world and setting its rules. Thus, many new players went into business with their own visions, dreams and ideas but most of all, with a shared drive for success and profit. Among them were cinema periodicals that were not necessarily linked to the “seventh art”. Often, their products were part of a set of publications covering different areas.
