Atlantic Grupa at the Sarajevo Film Festival

This year, Atlantic Grupa again supported the 18th Sarajevo Film Festival (SFF) as a central cultural regional manifestation, once again not only as a sponsor of the festival, but also as a benefactor for the special festival project Sarajevo, City of Film.

In this years’ Sarajevo City of Film competition, two short films from Serbia and Hungary competed, and at the formal ceremony in the open summer theatre, the film “Roundabout” won the Atlantic Grupa award from Hungarian director Orsi Nagypal. It is a project that gives young film professionals from the region the chance to make a short film in professional conditions, and then compete for the Atlantic Grupa prize. The project is a sort of extension of the Sarajevo Talent Campus, at whose opening Atlantic Grupa, as the benefactor, hosted numerous festival guests during afternoon cocktail hour. At the opening of the 6th STC in the Meeting Point theatre, American actress Angelina Jolie held the introductory speech to the attendees – a hundred directors, actors, screenwriters and other filmmakers. Atlantic Grupa made sure the good atmosphere was maintained with a taste-test of Cedevita, Argeta canapés, and Štark products.
