    We were so happy to be part of Omladinski Festival with our short film, Cross Your Heart. The whole communication process was very good and the festival very professional.

    Youth Film Festival (OFF) Sarajevo is a perfectly organized film festival! Unfortunately, due to my work duties, I could not travel to Sarajevo, I watched very closely with social networks during the festival days and I was enchanted by the atmosphere of the festival. The program was professionally selected and I thank the jury for the Official Selection for my only second short film. Thank you Sarajevo and all the best! I hope to meet you at your festival!
