The Sarajevo Film Festival continuously develops its recognizable concept as an international film festival with a clear focus on Southeast European films.
Better integration of the existing segments and development of the new competition programme enable Sarajevo Film Festival to further affirm itself as a must-attend film festival for authors, film professionals, students, cinemagoers and journalists.
This year, the Festival also presented two new venues: House of Shorts and Youth Theatre that served as a central gathering point for Children’s Programme and TeenArena audiences. In addition Festival’s most popular venue Raiffeisen Open Air Cinema, that attracted some 3,000 moviegoers each night, was reconstructed. Numerous eminent filmmakers presented their work to the audience including Honorary Heart of Sarajevo Award Recipients John Cleese and Oliver Stone
