The High Sun by Dalibor Matanic

For the first time in its 13-year history, the BHFF is expanding by adding an additional evening of screenings and events, for a total of four festival days of film, art, culture, conversation, new connections and fun.

This year’s program consists of four blockbuster features, seven documentaries and five short films, including an animated film, while the competition program features works by five women directors. 

Tigers by Danis Tanovic

Things will kick off with a newly added BH Film Forum program on Wednesday, May 25 at Anthology Film Archives, the place which hosted the second and third annual BHFF editions back in 2005 and 2006. The evening will include the screenings of two films as part of the non-competition program, as well as a special panel presentation featuring Bosnian-Herzegovinian and international film professionals and cinema experts. BH Film Forum is intended as a warm-up to exciting events to follow and to provide the audience and those Bosnian filmophiles an informative artistic backdrop for the inspiring film line up to come.

Our Everyday Life by Ines Tanovic

Then, from Thursday, May 26 through Saturday, May 28, BHFF moves to SVA Theatre for a jam-packed, three-day marathon of screenings featuring the 2016 BHFF competition selections, Q&As with filmmakers, celebration of Bosnian-Herzegovinian cinema and culture and much more! 

No One΄s Child by Dalibor Matanic

The feature films that will screen during BHFF are Our Everyday Life by Ines Tanović, The High Sun by Dalibor Matanić, No One’s Child by Vuk Ršumović and Tigers by Danis Tanović, while in the Documentary section we find the feature documentaries The Soul Train by Nermin Hamzagic and One Day in Sarajevo by Jasmila Zbanic.

Films selected to screen at the 13th Annual BHFF competition program are eligible to win a number of honors including the Golden Apple audience and jury awards.

One Day in Sarajevo by Jasmila Zbanic

In 2016, the BHFF Jury consists of scriptwriter, producer and general secretary of the Association of Filmmakers in Bosnia and Herzegovina Elma Tataragić; filmmaker, educator and author Annette Danto and scholar of film and literature Nataša Milas. 

The jury will award the following honors to the most outstanding films: BHFF 2016 Jury Award for Best Documentary Film; BHFF 2016 Jury Award for Best Short Film and BHFF 2016 Jury Award for Best Feature Film. Films eligible for the Jury Award are all those screened at the BHFF 2016 that were released in 2014, 2015 and 2016. As always, the audience will select one film in any of the categories to receive the BHFF 2016 Audience Award for the Best Picture. All those attending the screening will be able to vote for the favorite film of this year’s Bosnian-Herzegovinian Film Festival. 

The BHFF is entirely non-for-profit and completely run by a tirelessly dedicated team of volunteers who do it all out of love. If you’d like to make a donation today to support the BHFF, visit the festival’s sponsorship page to make your tax-deductible and secure donation.
