share info
Few weeks before the opening of its 21st edition, the Sarajevo Film Festival unveiled a programme filled with international and regional titles, to be screened in its competition and non-competition sections. 
With a rich Industry Section for beginners or already established professionals and its annual sidebar events, from July 14 to 22, the festival invites audiences and the film industry in the region΄s most significant meeting. 

The Competition Programme – Feature Film 2015 will screen the latest films of well-known Balkan filmmakers, such as Ines Tanovic΄s debut feature film, Our Everyday Life. The section includes other 5 feature debuts, while Tanvovic΄s film comes as a world premiere, along with Entanglementby Tunç Davut, from Turkey. 

In the words of festival programmer, Elma Tataragic, “By offering two world premieres, as well as one international and seven regional, this year’s Competition Program also offers a proof of the supremacy and strength of the regional cinema. The selected films are strong, intelligent, multilayered and brave; the stories they tell are exciting and there is no room for doubt that the audience will recognize their value.”

Yorgos Lanthimos΄ latest opus The Lobster, will be screening at the out of competition Kinoscope programme along with films from directors such as Shinya Tsukamoto, Christian Petzold, Jafar Panahi and Takashi Miike.
