SFA STUDENT MARTA HERNAIZ PIDAL'S FILM NOMINATED FOR THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL CINÉFONDATION SELECTION

Date: April 15th, 2016

It is our great pleasure to share the information on a major international success of the Sarajevo Film Academy of the University SSST and its MFA student Marta Hernaiz Pidal from Mexico, who has entered the 69th Cannes Film Festival Cinéfondation selection with her short film "Dobro" (Fine).

This year, the Cinéfondation Selection has chosen 18 films, in a competition between 2,300 works submitted by film schools from around the world - a total of 15 countries from three continents. More than half of the selected films are directed by women - 10 out of the 18 films selected.

The three Cinéfondation prizes will be awarded at a ceremony preceding the screening of the prize-winning films on May 20 at the Buñuel Theatre.

This film is a SFA's film.factory project and B&H's entry to this year's  Cinéfondation selection at the Cannes Film Festival. It is a cooproduction between Bosnia and Herzegovina (SFA-film.factory) and Mexico (Cine Vendaval).

This success is shared by all SSST staff, but with a special debt owed to Marta's mentor - a prominent Hungarian film director and Professor at the SFA Bela Tarr and also to the producers Emina Ganić (SFA) and Jorge Bolado (Cine Vendaval).

We sincerely believe that this is just one of Marta's many future successes, and we look forward to seeing more films and our students successfully applying for the most prominent film festivals.

Once again, congratulations to Marta, SFA and the whole team on this remarkable international success!
