Svi smo mi iz tog filma

Watch the first amateur vertical film!

We can watch it together at the premiere
on August 12 in the Children of Sarajevo Square,
or watch online from August 13.


This year, after years of friendship and cooperation, Sarajevo Film Festival and Atlantic Grupa are rolling out the red carpet of Sarajevo Film Festival for all young talents from the region. In order to rekindle creative spark and bring the festival to the audience across the region, we are giving the audience an opportunity to take a shot at filming an amateur vertical film to be featured in the official programme of the festival. Why? Because we believe that creativity, art and beauty should be available to everyone.

Atlantic Grupa and Sarajevo Film Festival share passion for connecting the region through creativity. They want to inspire people and lead the way in introducing a new way of doing business and thinking. That is why we want you to step into the limelight, make your own film and become a part of this story – because WE ARE ALL PART OF THE SAME STORY.

One of the biggest film festivals in Europe promotes the spirit of Sarajevo – the spirit of openness, inclusiveness and diversity – far beyond its limits. This is why we are inviting everyone to become a part of this amazing film story. Put your name on the closing credits of our film!
