Jolie, whose directorial debut is in 1992 and 1995, the Bosnian war, received a standing ovation as he picked up the prize of honor Heart of Sarajevo.
“I told Brad in the car I was afraid I was going to mourn,” he said. Festival was presented the award for best actor Thomas Schubert who starred in the Atman, also called the best film.
Mrs. Ada Condeescu Romanian leader won best actress for her role in Loverboy.
Jolie, 36, who was at the 17th Sarajevo Film Festival with boyfriend Brad Pitt, visited Bosnia several times last year as a goodwill ambassador for the refugee agency of the UN.
She said she was “very honored to be here.”
“No better example of the strengths of the artists and the festival, which began during the war and became stronger each year,” he said.
The festival began as an act of resistance in 1995 with residents facing mortar shells, which meet in a basement to see Fiction, Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp.
Some scenes from the film Jolie in the Land of Blood and Honey – goes on sale in December – were killed in Bosnia, while others were killed in Hungary.
The film, starring Rade Serbedzija Zana Marjanovic and tells the story of a love story between a Muslim woman and a Bosnian Serb, on opposite sides of the conflict.
The license to shoot at a time when Sarajevo was revoked after local rumors that the film is a rape victim who falls for her attacker.
The license was given back when the producers showed that the rumor was not true.
At that time, Jolie asked people to “stay the trial until they have seen the movie.”
“There are many plot twists that address the sensitive nature of the relationship between the main characters and will be released once the film opens,” he said.
During her visit to Bosnia in the last year the United Nations, Jolie spoke about the thousands who have been unable to return home despite end of war 16 years ago.
