Bosnia’s Sarajevo Film Festival was supposed to be the first film festival to behold on a physical level after the COVID-19 breakout but at the last minute, due to rising cases in Bosnia, they had to change their mind and hold the festival online.
A jury led by Hungarian director Michel Hazanavicius and featuring director Carlo Chatrian, actress Jadranka Đokić, director Srdan Golubović, and the Morelia Film Festival’s Andrea Stavenhagen, awarded the festival’s top prize to Visar Morina’s Exile.
Best Director Award went to Ru Hasanov for “The Island” and the Best Actress went to Marija Skarcic for “Mare”, Best Actor to Vangelis Mourikis for “Digger”. Honorary Heart Awards went to Mexican director Michel Franco whose new film will be in Venice Film Festival and Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen who cinephiles love for many films for decades.
Filmiere.com hopes to report your festival news that is held at the physical level but with full safety around the world soon.
