Sarajevo Film Festival Kicks off in Bosnia

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — German director Wim Wenders and actress Charlotte Rampling will be among the guests at the 17th Sarajevo Film Festival that kicks off Friday evening.

Over eight days, some 100,000 viewers will get to see some of the 200 films from dozens of countries.

This year, the event will open with the screening of the "Le Havre" by Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki. Organizers expect over 40 artists and politicians from the region to attend the screening of a Bosnian movie, "The Orchestra" — the biography of a pre-war rock group famous in the former Yugoslavia.
