Bosnian Director Tanovic Will Open This Year's Edition!
9th Bosphorus Film Festival will open this year's edition with Oscar winner Bosnian director Danis Tanovic’s film Not So Friendly Neighbourhood Affair which had its world premiere at the 27th Sarajevo Film Festival.
Winner of Oscar and a Golden Globe for the Best International Film with his first feature No Man’s Land, director Danis Tanovic’s latest film Not So Friendly Neighborhood Affair which was screened in Sarajevo, invites audiences to witness the recovery of a historical town after the pandemic. The film is about a woman from Zagreb looking for the best kebabs in town and how a totally harmless, friendly gesture causes the complete disintegration of the of many people’s business and private life. The film has attracted great attention with its topic, and will have its Turkish premiere after the opening ceremony with the participation of the director Danis Tanovic.
Closing Film Of The Festival, The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain
9th Bosphorus Film Festival will close this year’s edition on October 29th with director Will Sharpe’s film The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy.
The extraordinary true story of eccentric British artist Louis Wain, whose playful, sometimes even psychedelic pictures helped to transform the public's perception of cats forever, taking audiences on a time travel from the late 1800s through to the 1930s. Having its world-premiere at the 48th Telluride Film Festival and screening at the Toronto Film Festival, we follow Louis Wain as he seeks to unlock the "electrical" mysteries of the world and, in so doing, to better understand his own life and the profound love he shared with his wife Emily Richardson.
