Tonight: The Awards Ceremony of the 29th Sarajevo Film Festival

At the National Theater of Sarajevo, the official awards ceremony for the Heart of Sarajevo awards will take place at 9.30 p.m., preceded by a red carpet event at 9.00 p.m.

A total of 49 films are competing for the Heart of Sarajevo awards in the Competition Programmes of the 29th Sarajevo Film Festival. Additionally, there will be two gala events and a special screening.

At 8:30 p.m. at the Coca-Cola Open Air Cinema, the film CLUB ZERO by Jessica Hausner, this year's guest of the "Tribute To" programme, will be screened tonight. Hausner will address the audience before the screening. The renowned director was a guest at the 23rd Sarajevo Film Festival in 2017 and opened the 11th edition of the Talents Sarajevo program.

The film follows a teacher who joins the staff of an international boarding school to teach a subject called "Conscious Eating", during which she learns that eating less is healthier. The other teachers slowly notice what's happening, and when concerned parents start to realize, "Club Zero" becomes a reality. Among the producers of this film is the Obala Art Center from Sarajevo, as part of a joint project with TRT and the Doha Film Institute.

At 8:45 p.m. at the Stari Grad Open Air Cinema, the film HOTEL PULA by Andrej Korovljev will be screened. The film crew will greet the audience before the screening.
