Sarajevo Film Festival

Now that the 20th edition of Sarajevo Film Festival is officially closed I would like to present to you this amazing festival that is held every year in august and showcases an extensive variety of features  and short films from around the world. The Sarajevo Film Festival is one of the largest in Europe and it was founded in 1995 during the siege of Sarajevo and the Bosnian Independence War.

The SFF has been attended by celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom, Daniel Craig, Danny Glover, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman,Gérard Depardieu and many more and has sometimes been host to political messages . Sabina Sabic and her daughter Sara arrived  this month with matching gowns made from Palestinian flags. International entertainers like Bono Vox attended the Sarajevo Film Festival a few years ago expressing their own opinions on some political matters.

Let me show you some striking images of this festival and I hope that one day you will have the opportunity to visit Bosnia and the Sarajevo Film Festival.
