Young Croatian directors Klara Šovagović and Josip Lukić have won the Heart of Sarajevo award for Best Student Film at the 28th Sarajevo Film Festival with their movie It’s Not Cold for Mosquitoes. The award, whose patron is the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC), was presented at the festival’s closing ceremony.


The Heart of Sarajevo for the Best Student Film, championed by the RCC, aims to promote films made by students from regional film schools, faculties and art academies. With this section of the competition programme, the Sarajevo Film Festival provides a new platform for the training of talented film professionals at the very beginning of their careers. The focus is on feature films, documentaries and animated films up to 60 minutes that were created within the teaching process of regional film schools.



The RCC has sponsored the Sarajevo Film Festival’s Heart of Sarajevo award for the Best Student Film since its introduction in 2017. Previous laureates of the award are: Alexandru Mironescu (Romania) for Summer Planning in 2021; Zeynep Dilan Süren (Turkey) for The Great Istanbul Depression in 2020; Nikola Stojanović, (Serbia) for Sherbet in 2019; Hajni Kis (Hungary) for Last call in 2018l; and Neven Samardžić (Bosnia and Herzegovina) for Clean in 2017.
