Jolie wows Sarajevo Film Festival

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina, July 31 (UPI) -- The Bulgarian movie "Ave" won the special jury award and Angelina Jolie was given a lot of applause at the Sarajevo (Bosnia) Film Festival this weekend.

Jolie and husband Brad Pitt made a surprise appearance in Sarajevo where Jolie received an Honorary Heart of Sarajevo for her humanitarian work.


Us Magazine said Sunday the long round of applause when Jolie walked on stage nearly moved the American star to tears.

Jolie directed "The Land of Blood and Honey," the love story of a Christian-Muslim couple during the bloody Bosnian war.

Bulgaria was well represented in the awards categories. Along with director Konstantin Bojanov's "Ave," Bulgarian films received awards for best film for "Breathing."

The acting awards went to Austrian Thomas Schubert and Ada Condeescu of Romania, the Sofia News Agency reported.
