Company data

In 1995, during the closing stages of the four-year-long Siege of Sarajevo, the Obala Art Center initiated the Sarajevo Film Festival as a means of reconstructing civil society and preserving the cosmopolitan spirit of the city. The Obala Art Center was established with the aim of promoting cultural, artistic, and educational activities in Sarajevo and the surrounding region, connecting these activities with the rest of the world. Among the numerous projects carried out under its umbrella, the Sarajevo Film Festival, CineLink Industry Days and Network of the Festivals in the Adriatic Region hold particular importance and influence.
