I visited many countries around the world, but I fell in love with Bosnia and Herzegovina, says the director of Turkish short film "Vanished into Blue", which was shown at the Sarajevo Film Festival (SFF).
Abdurrahman Oner is a member of the SFF jury that ends tonight in Sarajevo.
"In Sarajevo I really feel at home. This is a little Turkey, little Europe, but at the end it is a city where one feels pleasant. That is why I fell in love with this city. I came to love it that much that I am currently thinking weather I could come here to live. I think, after Istanbul, this is the only city where I could live," said Oner.
Speaking of the SFF, Oner said that he was fascinated by movie "An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker" from Bosnian Oscar-winner Danis Tanovic.
"Danis’s film enchanted me. I think this film will be my reason to get more focused on the Bosnian cinematography in future", he said.
On his engagement in SFF Oner said: "I'm very happy and pleased, because it's very useful to be part of such a festival. A lot of movies is at the scene and too many directors who applied in this Festival. Therefore, I personally feel very proud to be a part of it.”
Turkish film director announced his first feature-length film whose preparations are underway. According to him, it could be shown at the Turkish cinemas at the beginning of 2015.
