Jovan Marjanović has been with the Sarajevo Film Festival for more than two decades and while he is what he describes as “a true child of the festival” this year marks the first edition where he’ll sit as director of the much-loved Balkan event, taking the reins from founder and long-time director Mirsad Purivatra.“We owe Mirsad so much, but he’s very much still involved – there was no avoiding that,” quips Marjanović of the much-loved Purivatra, who has recently launched boutique Croatian event Ponta Lopud Film Festival. “He’s a remarkable leader and we will all miss him as our leader.

I hope I’ve learned enough from him to continue where he stopped.”With the Sarajevo Film Festival, it’s perhaps unsurprising that there’s a unique comradery within those who work at the festival.

Founded in 1995 during a near four-year siege on the city, few industry events can speak to the same unique cultural resilience that this relatively young festival can.
