The Word of the Young Cinema Club (Filmski klub Riječ mladih). In 1957 a group of film lovers in Sarajevo, who met through the magazine Riječ mladih (The Word of the Young), formed a cinema club of the same name. They would meet on Sundays at the Tesla Cinema, watch films and discuss them and general cinema topics afterwards, with growing ambitions to produce their own works. Out of this a process of amateur film production started that was to become the learning ground for Ratko Orozović, Duško Dimitrovski and Mladen Sihrovsky, cinematographers Stipe Svetinović and Mustafa Mustafić, and later in the 1970s, Nedžad Begović, Milenko Prstojević, Midhat Ajanović, and, for some time, Emir Kusturica as well.
