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.
