The selection includesx Crows by director Erol Mintas and producer Asli Erdem from Turkey, who return to Sarajevo one year after winning the Heart of Sarajevo for best film with The Song Of My Mother, and best actor for Feyyaz Duman.
Serbian-born and Romanian-based director Ivana Mladenovic, whose film Turn off the Lights won the Heart of Sarajevo for best documentary in 2012, teams up with producer Ada Solomon for her first fiction feature, Soldiers.
