Although Bosnia and Herzegovina generates only several feature films per year, its filmmakers have gained worldwide recognition, producing award-winning movies on very low budgets. Recent examples are Oscar-winning "No Man's Land"; "Grbavica," winner of the Golden Bear award at Berlinale; and "Snow," which took awards at the Cannes Film Festival and Hamptons International Film Festival.
The eighth annual Bosnian-Herzegovinian Film Festival will take place May 13th and 14th at Tribeca Cinemas in New York City. The call for entries deadline is March 15, 2011. The BHFF committee will consider feature films, short films, documentary films and animated films by Bosnian-Herzegovinian filmmakers as well as films that have Bosnia and Herzegovina as their theme. Films that are selected for the eighth annual BHFF may be eligible for the "The Golden Apple" audience awards.
