List of Movies of the Avant Premiere Gala Programme during Sarajevo Film Festival

August 2, 2019 11:00 AM
This year, the Avant Premiere Gala programme is exclusively focused on drama series. This is due to the program’s growth and development through its cooperation with the Festival’s platform for development of high-quality drama series, CineLink Drama, and the Avant Premiere programme of the Sarajevo Film Festival that screens recently completed regional productions. The Sarajevo Film Festival will continue to develop this segment of its program to keep up with the growing trend of regional production and popularity of “our local” drama series.
The drama series included in the 2019 edition of Avant Premieres Gala program of the Sarajevo Film Festival will compete for the Audience Award which is sponsored by BH Telecom.
