Mr. Branko Lustig has received yet another great award for his fruitful work in the film industry. At the 18th Sarajevo Film Festival he was awarded the Heart of Sarajevo Honorary Award for “outstanding contribution in promoting regional cinematography.” Award was presented by the Director of the Sarajevo Film Festival, Mr. Mirsad Purivatra, who introduced Mr. Lustig as the “living legend of the history of cinematography.” In his short speech, Branko Lustig recalled his professional engagements in Sarajevo and expressed delight with the award: “I have many friends here and this heart that I received is actually the heart of people of Sarajevo… and my heart belongs to Sarajevo.”
This is already the seventh year in a row that, through this Festival, we build a monument of tolerance, educate about the necessity of understanding the different, speak about love and strive for a better tomorrow. I am convinced that our audience will recognize the high quality of all our programs and help us in promoting tolerance.
