Angelina Jolie was honored with a special tribute and was joined by Brad Pitt at the closing ceremony of the 17th Sarajevo Film Festival on Saturday.
The ceremony was held at the national theatre in downtown Sarajevo. The couple posed at the red carpet before Miss Jolie was presented with the Honorary Heart of Sarajevo award.
Overwhelmed by the reception from the gathered crowd, the “Salt” actress reportedly fought back tears upon getting a non-stop ovation after being introduced by actress Zana Marjanovic.
During her speech, Angelina said, “I’m so happy to be in this remarkable city in this beautiful country and I’ve spent the last year lucky enough to experience not just the warmth and the hospitality of the local people but also your extraordinary talent.”
Continuing on about her experience shooting her directorial debut “In the Land of Blood and Honey” in Bosnia, Angelina stated, “In my career, I have never worked with such disciplined and talented artists as I was able to this last year.”
