Director: Branko Istvancic.

When the Croatian War of Independence ended, some villages of Bosnian Croats have been destroyed, and the refugees were re-housed in the homes of Croatian Serbs who had left Croatia. Now however, the Serbian owners are returning, and the Croatian residents face an uncertain future. Anger and hostility arise. Intolerance towards the returning Serbs lurks around every corner and they are welcomed with gunfire from AK-47s. Somewhere in this atmosphere of terror, an old man called Jozo, a Bosnian Croat, disappears without a trace. The police officer Filip, who also lives in a Serbian house, is entrusted with the case. Everyone believes that a returning Serb has murdered Jozo, but Filip launches a detailed investigation, determined to be unbiased and fair, even though he has his own ghosts from the past to deal with. 

Crossroads

Director: faysal soysal.

When they were kids, Bunyamin and his brother Yusuf fall in love with the same girl – Zeliha – and a childish game leads to Zeliha’s death. Bunyamin can never forgive himself and face up to his brother, instead; he keeps running away from home with excuses. After his graduation, he drifts to Bosnia to help with the discovery of dead bodies from the mass graves. The emotional pressure of his job brings his past back to him in his dreams, instead of being himself in his dreams; he turns into his brother Yusuf who struggles to find his true love Zuleyha. Zrinka is a Serbian-Bosnian psychologist helps people with post-war suicide syndrome. They meet on the Mostar Bridge while she considers committing suicide. Mysterious nature of Bunyamin attracts her. Zrinka tries to help him to be released from his qualms of conscience, but despite of all her efforts, Bunyamin doesn’t share the terrific childhood incident with her. After completing his job in the ICMP, (International Commission on Missing Persons), he returns to Turkey to face his brother to deserve Zrinka’s love. While waiting for his return patiently, one day, Zrinka sees that something bad happens to him in her dream. She follows her instincts and begins a journey through Turkey to help him and find an answer to her love. In Hasankeyf, instead of what she expects, she finds another truth and the true love. This isn’t a straight-forward love story; it’s a tale of love, death and the healing of three lost hearts. It is pure reality drenched in dreams.

Mediterranean Film Festival

The Mediterranean Film Festival in Široki Brijeg is characteristic for a unique atmosphere – a mixture of relaxed fun, tourism, rhythm and films. Hence the Festival quickly became the favourite of film workers and audience. Those who once feel the scent of the Mediterranean in this little town of film, shall always return to it. In front of the hall where the projections are going on there is always an interesting atmosphere, and after the projections there is always fun and dancing to the rhythms of urban music till late hours. The Festival is the initiator of the new relations within the world of culture, there is no elitism in it, no VIP boxes, no privileges. Within the last ten years we have succeeded to create an atmosphere in which no one feels alienated, inferior or less invited to be a part of the event.
