Association of Filmmakers of Bosnia & Herzegovina

"We are very excited to join the EFP family. Bosnia and Herzegovina will both contribute and benefit from this membership as we have a small but rather mature film industry. It will be great to use the EFP platforms for the promotion of our upcoming talents and films."
Elma Tataragić

The Association of Filmmakers of Bosnia and Herzegovina was founded in 1950 and gathers film professionals from the various fields of filmmaking. It has the mandate to develop and guide the national film industry with, at present, 22 production companies producing about 15 documentaries and feature films per year. Moreover, it supports the promotion of national cinema abroad and selects the candidate for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Awards. Annual projects of the Association also include the Film Festival of Cinema of Bosnia and Herzegovina (part of Sarajevo Film Festival) and a competitive student film festival.

The Association of Filmmakers has been a member of EFP since 2015.
