Sarajevo Film Fest to honor Berlinale director

Dieter Kosslick to receive Heart of Sarajevo award in July

COLOGNE, Germany -- Dieter Kosslick, the director of the Berlin International Film Festival, will receive the Honorary Heart of Sarajevo award at this year's Sarajevo Film Festival (July 23-31).

The award, which has previously gone to luminaries including director Mike Leigh, actor Steve Buscemi and Venice Film Festival director Marco Mueller, is in part a recognition of Kosslick's support of the Sarajevo Talent Campus. The campus, in which young film talents from Southeast Europe work and learn from seasoned professionals, was launched in 2007 in cooperation with Berlin's own Talent Campus.
