Sarajevo Film Festival 2024

7th AJB DOC Film Festival to explore theme of justice

The seventh edition of the Al Jazeera Balkans Documentary Film Festival (AJB DOC) will take place from 13 to 17 September 2024 in Sarajevo. This year’s festival will focus on the theme of «JUSTICE?» through a curated selection of documentaries.

The festival will feature high-quality documentary screenings alongside AJD Industry Days, a programme aimed at documentary industry professionals. Additional activities will include special screenings, panels, and training sessions for young filmmakers, as well as various other events related to the promotion of documentary films.

Each year, AJB DOC adopts a central theme to reflect social events and societal trends. The 2024 theme, «JUSTICE?» aims to explore concepts of justice and fairness in the context of current global changes, such as shifts in the balance of power, mass killings, state aggression, migrations, political turmoil, economic disparities, and technological advancements.

The competition programme will include documentaries intended for TV broadcast, while Last Minute Cinema will present feature-length documentary films. AJB Screening will showcase notable documentaries from the region, and the SmartDoc selection will focus on works by young filmmakers. Special screenings are also planned as part of the festival’s diverse offerings.
