Sarajevo Film Fest Plucks Cannes Titles, Including Oscar Contender ‘Son of Saul’ (Trailer)

Sarajevo Film Fest Plucks Cannes Titles, Including Oscar Contender 'Son of Saul' (Trailer)

It’s mid-summer, which means European film festivals — from Karlovy Vary to Locarno and, now, Sarajevo — start to offer up alternative programming as the busy Fall season looms.

Now in its 21st year, the Sarajevo Film Festival is bringing world premieres as well as buzzy Cannes titles to Bosnia. Those who missed Sony Pictures Classics pickup “Son of Saul,” the Holocaust drama that took the Coens’ Cannes jury prize and is now Hungary’s Oscar submission, can see it here. (Trailer below.)

Also from Cannes are Quinzaine winner “Mustang,” “Panama,” “The High Sun” and “The Treasure,” from acclaimed Romanian director Corneliu Porumboiu, who helmed postmodern procedural “Police, Adjective.” Director Andrei Cohn will also represent Romania with “Back Home.”

The festival, like this year’s Venice, has also made room for women directors. Athina Rachel Tsangari, one in a new wave of Greek filmmakers, will present “Chevalier” in Sarajevo after screening in competition at Locarno, which runs August 5 through 15. Her flippant comedy “Attenberg,” from 2010, was a real treat.

Here’s the Sarajevo lineup.
