Sarajevo Film Festival 2024

Movies on War Film Festival announces full programme for 12th edition

Movies on War has announced its full programme for its 12th edition, held between 16 – 20 November in Elverum, Norway. The film festival is unique in that it is one about war and conflict, peace and reconciliation. Films screened cover the full range of armed conflicts, regardless of geography, and provide insights into social movements, cultural events, popular uprisings, and political change, both in the past and in the present. The Movies on War programme includes something for everyone, from documentaries and thrillers to poetry readings and children’s movies.

Below, you will find the complete programme of films screened at the 12th Movies on War film festival. In addition, three Books on War will be presented, as well as a panel event «War in Europe – Where are we? Where are we going?»
