Franco was deemed worthy of the award given at the festival last year, but was unable to receive his award due to the outbreak of the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19).

The 2020 film New Order, directed, scripted and produced by Franco, was presented to moviegoers on the 5th day of the festival.

Prior to the film’s screening, Franco met his fans by appearing on the red carpet outside the National Theater.


A total of 47 films are competing in 4 categories to receive the “Heart of Sarajevo” festival awards at the SFF, which opened its doors to moviegoers for the 27th time this year.
