Sarajevo announces Kinoscope programme
In the Crosswind by Martti Helde

The Sarajevo Film Festival has announced this year's Kinoscope programme, a non-competitive strand curated by Mike Goodridge, former Screen International editor and now CEO of Protagonist Pictures, as well as by Festivalscope's Alessandro Raja and Mathilde Henrot.

(The article continues below - Commercial information)

The 19-strong selection includes 12 films by first- or second-time filmmakers. "In programming Kinoscope this year, we found ourselves unconsciously veering towards work from new, young filmmakers," say the programmers in the press release. "We only realised this when the programme was complete – 12 out of the 19 features are from first- and second-time directors – but perhaps the nature of a festival programmer is to be surprised and delighted by fresh visions and new voices, so in retrospect, it’s perhaps not that much of a shock."

The programme features all kinds of genres and forms, from the purely narrative, historical In the Crosswind [+see also:
