The first partnership between Switzerland and the Sarajevo Film Festival (SFF) dates back to 1996.

The Documentary Competition Programme, which Switzerland has been supporting since 2002, has become an internationally recognized platform presenting films that offer reflections on people’s lives and on the state of human rights in the world. In addition, since 2008 the Government of Switzerland together with the SFF hosts the Human Rights Day within the same program.

Two prizes of 3.000 Euros each are awarded for the best documentary movie and for the best human rights’ documentary.
