Those who appreciated the 2001 Oscar winning hit No Man’s Land by acclaimed director Danis Tanovic have cause to celebrate the cinema that is showcased at the Chicago Festival of Bosnian-Herzegovinian Film.

Chicago is home to the largest community of Bosnian-Herzegovinians in the country and this group is very proud of their heritage: the Film Festival is made completely of volunteers from the community and held annually in April at the lakeshore campus of Loyola University.

Past years have brought such commended films (and their directors) as Grbavica: Esma?s Secret from Jasmila Zbanic and Days and Hours> by Pjer Zalica.

For those interested in learning about or discussing Bosnian culture and film, there is a panel discussion with special guests who have included Ales Debeljak (a well-known Slovenian author and professor) and Rajko Grlic, a filmmaker.

If you have never seen a film from Bosnia and Herzegovinia before, it is time to check out the Chicago Festival of Bosnian-Herzegovinian Film because it showcases some of the most innovative and excellently crafted film available today.
