Due to greatly increased concern regarding the epidemiological situation in Sarajevo, and record cases of COVID-19 infection in the city in the past several days, we at the Sarajevo Film Festival have made the decision to conduct the 2020 edition of all festival events entirely online  from 14 to 21 August. This confirms the Sarajevo Film Festival’s responsibility and commitment to its community. 

The world premiere of FOCUS, GRANDMA, the most recent film by Bosnian director Pjer alica, opens the programme of the Sarajevo Film Festival. The film will be available for viewing worldwide, at ondemand.sff.ba – the Sarajevo Film Festival’s online platform.
