Sarajevo-sur-Seine Film Festival
From March 18th to 20th, 2016
Registration on email@example.com
Launched by the young Bosnians in 1995 during the siege of Sarajevo and the abhorrent ethnic cleansing in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the “Sarajevo Film Festival” represents the idea of resistance through culture. Powered by this spirit of civil resistance, the SFF has become a great European festival that allows young people from all over the regions and beyond to meet each other, to discuss, to learn from each other, to be open to the world, and to build a shared future together in a region that is still tormented by nationalism.
With France still under the shock of Islamist terrorist attacks, threatened by the growing popularity of the National Front, and a general indifference among many citizens, it is the universal and humanist spirit exemplified by the SFF that has inspired the European Grassroots Antiracist Movement – EGAM to create in Paris the “Sarajevo-sur-Seine Film Festival”!
From March 18th to 20th, we will screen the best documentaries from Balkans on human rights, and organize discussions with the directors and the young human rights advocates from all over Europe who have selected the documentaries and will present them to the French public.
This festival is part of a broader action: during the whole week before, the EGAM along young Europeans and French from different backgrounds, mobilize in Paris, Hénin-Beaumont, Calais and Aubervilliers to act with refugees, and fight Islamism and nationalism with an objective: resist through culture
The evening closing ceremony of this activist and cultural week will take place on the 21st of March, the “international day for the elimination of racial discriminations”, at Le Carillon. This will be the first young, committed, European and cultural event following the attacks in Paris last November.
