In the coming period, we will bring you some of the comments on the 14th Sarajevo Youth Film Festival, i.e. "reviews" of the Festival sent to us by our guests, participants, young authors who arrived in Sarajevo from 14 countries around the world!
"Youth Film Festival Sarajevo is a festival that could not be more friendly to young authors and guests. The team is the most communicative and welcoming I have ever met. This is truly the most professional festival I have ever been to. Film selections, panels, awards and parties and the red carpet itself was amazing. The selected films and their authors as well as the winners were treated like the biggest movie stars! This is amazing! Simply one of the best experiences of my life. I will tell everyone about this!"
- Arti Savchenko, director of the film "Government goes to London"
"Everything looked beautiful from day one! The city of Sarajevo was covered with posters, billboards and flags of the "Youth Film Festival Sarajevo.
The team of this festival, made up mostly of young people from Sarajevo, was incredible. Their enthusiasm to make everything look good was noticeable from day one. They were in every corner of the city and made sure that everything went well in the organization of the festival. The festival program was rich in outstanding films from all countries of the world. There were many workshops and activities throughout the week and in this way the festival provided an opportunity to meet and socialize with very professional people. Hospitality, organization and a beautiful atmosphere are what characterize the Youth Film Festival"

"I am very glad that for the second year in a row I returned to OFF and held the official premiere of the film "Adio". I can say on behalf of the team and myself that these 5 days that the festival lasted were the 5 most beautiful days we have experienced A festival of beautiful people, full of positive energy and a festival that offers lifelong friendships. Thank you to OFF for the phenomenal organization and the opportunity for "Adio" to hold its world premiere at OFF. I look forward to every new release of this great festival, for which, if he hasn't already, shut up all over the world, because he deserves it!"
- Karlo Gutić, director of the film "Adio"
