Jahorina Film Festival

Jahorina is known in Bosnia and Herzegovina for its ski slopes and for the Winter Olympics in 1984. I happened to be in Sarajevo during the autumn and to be honest I didn’t want to visit the mountains because I was not planning on doing any site seeing outside of the city.

I was staying at Franz Ferdinand Hostel and the amazing staff informed me of a Film Festival that was going on nearby. I had heard many good things about the Sarajevo Film Festival but I knew it was going on during the summer, in August to be exact. This Film Festival was on the Jahorina Mountain. I had to do some digging to learn a bit more about this mountain and if the Film Festival was actually worth checking out.
