Fresh from Sarajevo, we’d like to introduce photographer and graphic designer Mirza Hasanefendić. His photography beautifully captures the essence of 18th Sarajevo Film Festival , transporting the viewer to a world of movement and color that revolves around the hustle and bustle of the festival itself. Hasanefendić has been so gracious to compile a small collection of his photos in a way that tells a story of how the inhabitants of Sarajevo and film enthusiasts alike congregated to enjoy this year's festival. You can view his full collection on our Flickr page.

The festival attracts 100,000 people from Sarajevo and abroad.
