Student travel to Sarajevo for film festival

Travelers making their way through the Balkans may be interested in catching the last few days of the Sarajevo film festival, which will end on 20th August 2009.

Backpackers would do well to book their hostels as soon as possible to ensure they have somewhere to stay while the internationally-acclaimed cinematic extravaganza takes place.

Tonight (19th August 2009), the Bosnian capital city will be presenting the Katrin Cartlidge Foundation Scholarship to director and producer Juanita Wilson for his film The Door.

A screening of Without Name, which was made by previous winner Cary Fukunaga will take place at the event, which is being held at the National Theater.

Other highlights include a feature film competition and short film competition.

Backpackers may wish to spend some time during their stay in Sarajevo exploring the city, which boasts a wealth of museums and still bears the scars of the Bosnian war.
