Sarajevo Film Festival 2024

Sarajevo Film Festival adds Ukraine to regional programme

The Sarajevo Film Festival shows its solidarity with the Ukrainian people and filmmakers and condemns the Russian invasion of Ukraine. As an international film festival with a focus on the Southeast Europe region, the Sarajevo Film Festival joins Ukraine in its official programmes. This includes the festival competition programmes for feature, documentary, short and student films, the In Focus programme, the CineLink Film Industry Days programme for film professionals, as well as the Talents Sarajevo programme.

The festival also launches a residency programme for filmmakers from Ukraine, who will work on their projects in the development and postproduction stages in Sarajevo in collaboration with leading BiH and international experts from the world of film, after which they will be presented at the CineLink Film Industry Days of the Sarajevo Film Festival.

The Ukrainian delegation will be invited to the CineLink Film Industry Days with the aim of enhancing the collaboration with film professionals from Southeast Europe.

In an effort to symbolically mark the beginning of this collaboration, the Sarajevo Film Festival posted on its YouTube channel the film Reflections by Ukrainian director Sergei Loznitsa, part of the 2014 omnibus Bridges of Sarajevo.
