Within the Sarajevo Winter Festival 2012, embassies of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovak Republic with local partners organized a film week showing top art achievements from their countries.

"The Battle For Warsaw 1920", which opened the film week, is a 3D film showing almost two hours of Polish struggle to defend the capital and at the same time a love story of a young man sent to front against the Russians.

The film week was scheduled to be from February 8-12 but due to heavy snow that hit Bosnia and blocked the capital for few days it was moved to February 20-24.

All projections are in Sarajevo's Cinemacity multiplex, titled to B/C/S and English and free of charge.

The Czech film "The Identity Card" by Ondrej Trojan and Hungarian "Test" by Peter Bergendy will be screened on the second day of the film week, February 21.

Following days will bring also films: Polish "Vinci" by Janusz Machulski, "Mosquito's Tango" by Miloslav Luther from Slovakia, Hungarian "Control" by Nimrod Antal, "Zero" by Pawel Borowski from Poland, Slovakian film "Broken Promise" by Jiri Chlumsky and "Walking Too Fast" by the Czech director Radim Spacek.

After screenings in Sarajevo, the film week will also be shown in Banja Luka, Mostar, Zenica, Tuzla, Bihac, Zvornik, Gracanica, Trebinje and Gorazde.
