, presented in competition at Cannes in 2010.

He became the first Mexican filmmaker to be nominated for either Best Director or Best Producer in the history of the Academy Awards, and the first Mexican filmmaker to receive a Best Picture Award at Cannes. Iñárritu took home the gongs for Best Director, Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay at the 87th Academy Awards, for Birdman. The following year, he won his second consecutive Academy Award for Best Director for The Revenant.

Additionally, he created the VR installation Carne y Arena (Virtually Present, Physically Invisible), which premiered at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival as the first VR project ever included in the Official Selection, and garnered Iñárritu his fifth Academy Award, a special Oscar presented to him by the Board of Governors. Most recently, he became the first Latin American filmmaker to head the jury of the Cannes Film Festival in 2019.

During the 25th Sarajevo Film Festival, Iñárritu will hold a master class, and the gathering will organise a special screening of Birdman.
