Included in the line-up are drama series BESA, BLACK SUN - 2nd season, THE FAMILY MARKOVSKI, THE GROUP and THE LAKE. In addition to getting a unique preview of the above series, the audience in Sarajevo will also have a chance to meet with their makers and cast members.
The Avant Premiere Gala programme will screen the UK-Serbia coproduction, BESA, written by one of the best British screenwriters, Tony Jordan, as well as the second season of Dragan Bjelogrlic’s BLACK SUN - one of the best Serbian drama series that is highly popular across former Yugoslavia. The first season of BLACK SUN premiered in the Avant Premiere Gala programme of the 2017 Sarajevo Film Festival. Also included in our 2019 line-up are the second season of THE FAMILY MARKOVSKI a highly popular drama series in North Macedonia, Serbia’s THE GROUP about dramatic lives of teenagers, and the suspenseful Slovenian crime TV show THE LAKE.
This year, the Avant Premiere Gala programme is exclusively focused on drama series. This is due to the program’s growth and development through its cooperation with the Festival’s platform for development of high-quality drama series, CineLink Drama, and the Avant Premiere programme of the Sarajevo Film Festival that screens recently completed regional productions. The Sarajevo Film Festival will continue to develop this segment of its program to keep up with the growing trend of regional production and popularity of “our local” drama series.
The drama series included in the 2019 edition of Avant Premieres Gala program of the Sarajevo Film Festival will compete for the Audience Award which is sponsored by BH Telecom.
