The 19th edition of the Sarajevo Film Festival opened its gates on Friday, August 16th with an official ceremony at the National Theatre. Many stars and professionals of the film industry were present on the costumary red carpet of the festival. The host of the evening was the Bosnian-Herzegovinian actress Marija Pikić.

Pikić pointed out that this year’s programme of the Sarajevo Film Festival will present 214 films from 59 countries and that in the upcoming ten days hundreds of film professionals and artists will visit Sarajevo.

“In the past 19 years, the festival has grown into an event that gathers over 2000 accredited professionals and journalists, as well as approximately 100 000 fans of film. The festival brings us films that are difficult to come by and are of rare value usually absent in everyday life,” Pikić added. 

The selector Elma Tataragić stated during the ceremony that this year’s Competition Programme – Features presents nine excellent films. Of the nine feature films, five are world and four regional premieres. The selection is varied, exciting and addresses the issue: Are films a representation of reality or part of it?

This year΄s Honorary Heart of Sarajevo Award was presented to Béla Tarr, one of the most significant directors of our time and founder of the film factory at the Sarajevo School for Science and Technology.

The ceremony was followed by a screening of An Episode In The Life Of An Iron Picker by the Bosnian-Herzegovinian director Danis Tanović (Bosnia-Herzegovina, 2013, 75min).
