Avant Premiere Trailers

After its successful launch two years ago, the Avant Premiere Programme is back for its third edition to present sneak previews of upcoming local-language films.

The programme showcases trailers of 18 upcoming film releases from the former Yugoslavia to exhibitors and distributors from this territory, as well as four gala premieres for the Sarajevo Film Festival audience. This year, Avant Premiere also features an Audience Development & Innovation Lab, arranged in collaboration with Europa Cinemas.

The purpose of Avant Premiere is to reinforce and strengthen regional promotion, distribution and market placement of films and drama series from our linguistic area. The programme presents films that have commercial box-office potential and are set to open in theatres in the fall or winter to regional distributors, exhibitors, filmmakers, journalists, film critics, representatives of other film festivals and the festival audience. To reflect the increasing popularity of TV drama, the programme now also features an upcoming promising drama series.

Since its first edition, the programme has attracted significant attention from film distributors, exhibitors, audience, media and film critics in the region.

Avant Premiere Trailers Screenings

These 18 films will be presented to approximately 30 regional distributors, broadcasters and cinema exhibitors. Pre-arranged one-on-one meetings follow the presentations.
