For BiHs culture: Cooperation between Creative Europe and Sarajevo Film Festival

The EU Office in Bosnia and Herzegovina organizes activities to highlight strong ties and the importance between the Sarajevo Film Festival (SFF) and Creative Europe, the largest European Union programme for the development of the audio-visual and creative sector.


SFF is one of the best examples of how Creative Europe supports the strengthening and growth of these industries, the development of talent and creativity, and the strengthening of European identity, culture and values.


“I have met so many inspiring people in Bosnia and Herzegovina whose talent and creativity transcend all boundaries, affecting people worldwide. In a country so rich in history, diversity and talent, programs such as Creative Europe make perfect sense and are of the utmost benefit to BiH citizens and cultural institutions,” said Ambassador Johann Sattler, Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Bosnia and Herzegovina and EU Special Representative to BiH.


Creative Europe funds have been available to BiH’s creative and cultural sector since 2014. So far, more than a hundred projects have been supported, for which more than 5.5 million euros have been approved through international cooperation projects and projects implemented in BiH.


Attending the Festival were also the Young European Ambassadors, who joined the event as part of the HumanRights Day program. Aside from participating in many amazing film screenings, and conversations with actors and producers, YEAs also organised and managed a panel dedicated to regional youth cooperation in the Western Balkans.
