Sarajevo Film Festival Reveals Documentary Competition Titles

Article excerpt

Four world premieres set for competitive strand.

The 2017 Sarajevo Film Festival (Aug 11-18) has revealed the titles set to feature in its documentary competition this year.

The programme includes 14 films in total, seven less than last year, focusing on a variety of topics including sexuality, family, love and survival.

Alongside four world premieres - all from Bosnia - there are several high-profile regional premieres that have bowed at other festivals.

City Of The Sun (Mzis Qalaqi) premiered at the Berlinale and had its UK bow at Sheffield Doc/Fest (winning the Art Doc prize), where fellow Sarajevo title Mr Gay Syria [pictured] had its world premiere.

Avec L’Amour premiered at HotDocs in Canada, while the Iggy Pop-narrated In Praise Of Nothing will premiere at Locarno.
