The Tuzla Film Festival is an annual film festival that takes places in Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Focus[edit]

The Tuzla Film Festival is organized by Magic Factory, with the aim of promoting South Slavic cinematography.

History[edit]

Organizational efforts for the first festival began in 2010, requiring two full years because of lack of financial and human resources. The first festival occurred on August 22, 2012, at the Bosnian Cultural Center in Tuzla. In attendance were actors, directors, producers and business people from the former Yugoslavia.

The second festival featured a casting call for the film Atomski s desna directed by Srđan Dragojević, in which two local children (Ensar Hamzić and Danis Aljić) became the first children of Tuzla to be cast in a feature film.

The third annual festival introduced an international film competition.

Categories[edit]

Tuzla Film Festival includes the following categories:

  • feature film
  • documentary
  • short
  • animated movie

In addition, the Tuzla Film Festival has two special categories:
