Sarajevo announces competition

Currently the largest and most important film event and industry platform in the South-Eastern Europe, the Sarajevo Film Festival marks its tenth year with an official competition. This year it includes nine films in the feature programme with one world premiere, and ten films in the short film selection, out of which two will have their world premieres at the festival.

The non-competitive In Focus sidebar traditionally presents regional films which achieved considerable success at films festivals worldwide or at their local markets.
