The sixteenth annual Bosnian-Herzegovinian Film Festival (BHFF) will take place in New York City from Wednesday, April 10th, through Saturday, April 13th 2019!

The BHFF promotes the diversity and breadth of Bosnia-Herzegovinian stories through film, and serves as a valuable link for members of the Bosnian diaspora in the New York City area to their heritage, while also exposing a wider audience to Bosnian culture. Over the years it has grown from a simple film revue event to a New York City institution, recognized by filmmakers, production companies, and the general cinema community. In addition to the roughly 15 productions screened annually, BHFF also includes a series of interactive, collaborative events that serve as a platform for critical dialogue between our guests, most of whom are filmmakers based in the Balkan region, and the hundreds of New York City-based attendees the festival attracts each year.

The BHFF call for entries is open until February 1, 2019. The festival is currently accepting feature, documentary, short, and animated films either produced by Bosnian-Herzegovinian filmmakers or that feature themes about Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The BHFF is a project of a not-for-profit organization run entirely by an all-volunteer staff. Entries for the 2019 edition will be accepted until February 1, 2019. For more information on submission guidelines and to enter your film, please click here.
