The Youth Initiative for Human Rights in Bosnia and Herzegovina (YIHR BiH) in partnership with the Sarajevo Film Festival (SFF) is organizing the official Sarajevo Film Festival Docu Corner from 12th to 17th August 2017.

What is Docu Corner?

 

Docu Corner is a platform for young people from Bosnia and Herzegovina, the region (Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro and Kosovo) and Europe.  It is an active part of the Competitive Documentary program during the SFF, where participants after attending premier movie screenings have the opportunity to discuss with movie makers about relevant issues related to their movies, which are mostly human rights related.

What else is part of the YIHR BiH program during the SFF?

YIHR BiH as part of the program organizes additional activities such as visits to museums, galleries and other places related to culture, remembrance or dealing with the past. Since SFF also has a Dealing with the Past program, YIHR BiH will invite a number of participants of the Docu Corner to attend part of the Dealing with the Past program which includes movie screenings, discussions and lectures.
