Many different films, from short films to feature - length films with different types of regional films, domestic films and Hollywood blockbusters.

As the organizers themselves have stated that one of the new goals of the SFF is to be climate neutral by the 30th festival and according to the understanding to have a greater local influence on the energy efficiency of the town of Sarajevo and the reduction of climate change.

The goal and aspiration of the SFF is to reach so called Net Zero meaning zero pollution rate by the 30th SFF, cleaner air for all as the answer to the challenge of extreme pollution and global climate change and the organizers are actively working towards reducing the carbon footprint of the SFF.
