20th Sarajevo Film Festival

August 15, 2014 - BOSNIA-HERZOGOVINA

The 20th Sarajevo Film Festival, which runs from 15 to 23 Aug 2014, anticipates unprecedented attention.

Just 48 days before the festival, Sarajevo will host world leaders and other dignitaries. They will be in the city to mark the centenary of the first shot fired in World War I -- the assassination of Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his pregnant wife on 28 Jun 1914. The world spotlight on Sarajevo promises to help the organizers promote the film festival, which has grown into the region's largest event of its kind.
