20th Titanic International Filmfestival

BELA TARR RECEIVES HONORARY HEART OF SARAJEVO AWARD

Eminent Hungarian filmmaker Bela Tarr has received the prestigious Honorary Heart of Sarajevo Award at the leading international film festival.


Multi-award winning Tarr has earned the honour for his outstanding contribution in enriching the profession of film art and in the advancement of the south-eastern European film industry, the Hungarian Film Union said in a statement. Other recipients have in the past included Angelina Jolie, Mike Leigh and Marco Mueller.

In 2006 the Sarajevo film festival organised a retrospective screening of Tarr's major films that include Family Nest (1979), Autumn Almanach (1984), Damnation (1988) and his emblematic Satan's Tango (1994), a 415-minute film considered to be a major influence on the remodernist film movement.

In February this year, Tarr established the Film Factory academy of film at the Sarajevo University's School of Science and Technology where internationally acclaimed directors such as Jim Jarmusch, Tilda Switon, Cristian Mungiu, Atom Egoyan and Agnieska Holland teach as guest lecturers.
