11th edition of the Youth Film Festival (OFF) Sarajevo commences on Friday with the screening of the Serbian short movie ‘Dog Days of Summer’ (‘Mi smo videli leto’) by Nikola Stojanovic.

The movie tells the story of a teenage girl who is moving to California, leaving behind everything she has ever loved. In a dying, working class hometown in Serbia, she spends her last days with two childhood friends. Abandoned places bring up the memories of a wild childhood, while two boys are torn by the love for the same girl. 

‘Dog Days of Summer’ will be screened as a part of the main festival’s program, The Wolf Competition, along with 17 other short movies made by young authors and produced either by authors themselves, or by movie schools.

The Biggest 5 program also kicks-off on Friday, with the screening of ‘Take me Somewhere Nice’ by Ena Sendijarevic at 2100 hrs. ‘Red Bracelets: The Beginning’ by Felix Binder, ‘The Kings of Summer’ by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, ‘Love, Simon’ by Greg Berlanti, and ’22 July’ by Paul Greengrass, will also be screened within ‘The Biggest 5’ program.

Tickets for the screenings can be purchased at the box office located in the Bosnian Cultural Center, Branilaca Sarajeva 24 Street, every day between 1100 and 2200 hrs.
