The official Heart of Sarajevo awards have been a feature of the festival since the 10th Sarajevo Film Festival.


The Heart of Sarajevo is awarded in all the Competition categories. Also, since 2005, the Honorary Heart of Sarajevo has been awarded to individuals who have contributed to the development of the Sarajevo Film Festival and regional film.


The search for a visual identity for the Sarajevo Film Festival ended spontaneously in 2004 with the choice of a shape that has been present since the very beginning of the Festival—a heart created by Agnès B., a great friend and patron of the Sarajevo Film Festival.
