We wish we could share some tips, that really work. We believe that there is a festival for every film, so first of all don’t go crazy if you’re not selected. When we finish watching submissions, our short list is far bigger than the 70-something competition films we have each year…

The first edition was held under the siege of Sarajevo and the people attending the cinema knew they were risking their life because they could have been hit by snipers or mortar shells. Against all odds, the event showed the tremendous courage of Sarajevo’s inhabitants, their resistance and protest against the aggression, seeking just to have a normal life, giving a sign that in spite of the horrible tragedy, culture was still alive in Sarajevo.

- Rada Šešić, Sarajevo Film Festival’s Head of Documentary Competition.
