Just days before opening night, Sarajevo Film Festival has made the decision to conduct all festival events of the 2020 edition entirely online from August 14 to 21. The festival in a statement explained, “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.”
The world premiere of FOCUS, GRANDMA, the most recent film by Bosnian director Pjer Žalica, opens the program of the Sarajevo Film Festival and will now be available for viewing worldwide, at ondemand.sff.ba – the Sarajevo Film Festival’s online platform.
Ondemand.sff.ba is the central hub for all the film screenings, programs and events of this year’s Sarajevo Film Festival – not just for local audiences but also for film lovers across the region and around the world.
CineLink Industry Days will be held online from August 15 to 20, 2020. As with the rest of the festival events, there will be no onsite CineLink elements.
