Chicago Festival of Bosnian Film 2011

Most people don't realize the immense treasure that is Bosnian films from such luminaries as Emir Kusturica (even though he has turned his back on his Sarajevo and Bosnian roots), Oscar winner Danis Tanovic, Jasmila Zbanic, Namik Kabil and so many others.
This film festival celebrates the rich culture and history that is Bosnian film.

Chicago Festival of Bosnian-Herzegovinian film is the premiere resource on film and video from Bosnia-Herzegovina and South Eastern Europe in the Midwestern United States.
The aims of our festival are:
  • To show new films by Bosnia and Herzegovina’s emerging directors and revive a few classics unknown to the American audiences
  • To provide a forum for discussion of the complexities of the contemporary Bosnian-Herzegovinian and South-East European identities, at home and in diasporas
  • To increase the visibility of the Chicago community of Bosnians and Herzegovinians, the largest in the United States
