After Yugoslavia

Stanford University Press

This chapter explores the growing existence of vibrant films and filmmaking in the former Yugoslav republics. The film industry that evolved in the former Yugoslavia was an unusual one in that it embraced both popular entertainment and artistic filmmaking. Yugoslav filmmakers won awards at international film festivals including Cannes, Venice, Montreal, Berlin, Karlovy Vary, Istanbul, Mannheim, and Hollywood, while also pleasing a home audience with surprisingly high box office receipts. Then came the wars of the 1990s, multiple changes, and the current period of recovery and development. This chapter discusses the political and social situations in each post-Yugoslav successor state and focuses on more than forty films from Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia, and Slovenia. Finally, it states that cinema continues to be one way people can cross national borders and overcome a difficult past, in order to be in touch with each other creatively beyond the complexity of politics.

Keywords:   post-Yugoslav space, filmmaking, post-Yugoslav films, transition, film financing, the “Prague Group,” Croatian “new wave,” Yugoslav cooperation
