“Authenticity is our priority.
Documentary film is a motion-picture intended to document important events, characters, architecture. In doing so, it is important to pay attention and present historical facts as they truly are, without manipulating them, and leave the audience to draw their own conclusions. However, many do not apply these principles and so today we are often in situations where content credibility has to be questioned. As a production company, we strive to adhere to journalistic and moral ethics. Judging by the ratings and reactions to our documentaries, we believe we have succeeded. Your FIST Production Company.

They are fighters, true heroes unknown. This film will change that!
Documentary film “Will You Stop and Listen” glows with optimisms and affirmation of one’s willpower, celebrating toughness of spirit, and beauty of human being.

Mladen Vojičić TIFA
“I’m speaking my mind and having nothing to hide”. It is with these words that Mladen Vojičić Tifa describes himself in the documentary titled “Tifa”. This 50-minutes story is the story about one of the most popular and most controversial public figures in the region and tries to explain his popularity.
Through all his ups and downs, Mladen Vojičić remained simply Tifa and nothing has changed him. The film speaks about Tifa’s meteoric success as the singer of “Bijelo dugme”, and his cooperation with “Divlje Jagode” and “Vatreni Poljubac”, as well as about his solo career.
Great figures of the rock’n’roll scene talk in the film: Goran Bregović, Milić Vukašinović, Bruno Langer, Sead Zele Lipovača… as well as his closest friends who have been by his side on rainy and on sunny days alike.
A special part in this film is focused on Tifa’s war period 1992-1994, when legendary and unforgettable songs “Ponesi zastavu” (Take the Flag) and the cult-song “Grbavica” were made.
The legendary concerts held in “Skenderija” and in the Dobrinja suburb of Sarajevo, as well as rare footage of the concert held in the war at “Sloga” in November 1993, showing the atmosphere both on the stage and in backstage.
A great part of the film is archival material filmed from mid-1980s until the beginning of this millennium in the systems of BETACAM SP and VHS).

Local Integrated Development, LID
Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H) is faced with a number of complex development challenges, including economic stagnation, growing poverty and deepening socio-economic inequalities. Long-lasting political problems, along with a complex constitutional order, contribute to the overall socio-economic deterioration, with a number of challenges such as corruption, unemployment and weak policy-making capacities. The economy is still constrained by high tax rates, poor infrastructure and an unfavorable investment climate...
Successful stories from around the world show that cooperation between neighboring cities and municipalities significantly contributes to the progress of local communities. Inter-municipal cooperation in the European Union countries is a standard for quality performance within the jurisdiction of local authorities. Joint activities of municipalities and cities contribute to creating a better and more efficient solution for citizens' problems, and thus improve the quality of life in local communities. However, in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), municipalities and cities rarely join forces and therefore it was necessary to enhance cooperation between local governments, and enable them to respond to the needs of citizens more efficiently, and mutually encourage the development of their communities. In order to improve the living conditions of the local population, the Government of Switzerland and the United Nations Development Program in Bosnia and Herzegovina (UNDP BiH), have launched inter-municipal cooperation projects within the Integrated Local Development Project (ILDP).
Social Inclusion Project
Who we are is not defined by what we own or what we have achieved in life, but also by how much we are ready to help to those in need. One of the main goals of the Integrated Local Development Project (ILDP), a joint project of the Government of Switzerland and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H), is to support partner municipalities and cities in promoting local development to the general benefit of all citizens.

Good, Quite Ordinary,
This series has an unequivocal message of the simple truth that if we look closely around us, there are people working and living in our neighborhoods who are distinguished by their kindness and willingness to sacrifice themselves for others.
Odyssey in Bosnia (1998.)
As a medium, television is a powerful tool of public persuasion for ethnic and religious conflicts in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the entire former Yugoslavia. Nationalist rhetoric and propaganda has been used on television to initiate and prolong violence in Bosnia.
FIST and a multi-ethnic/religious team of television and film professionals aim to produce an entertaining and informative television program called "Odyssey in Bosnia", which promotes a common sense decision for reconciliation and cooperation between ethnic and religious groups in B&H. With the support of OBN, F.I.S.T. anticipates to use the power of television in the name of unity and cooperation to counter past and minimize existing divisions which are often promoted on local television and other media.
So Black, It Can’t Be More Red Than This
The images and sounds in the film blend together from the perspective of the three main characters; a boy Nebojsa Malic who has kept a diary since 1984; his father, a sound engineer on Radio BiH, who creates a sound recording of the war by recording mostly his family and making a radio drama “Fire of Sarajevo” with his colleague Mirsad Tukic; and a TV director Slavisa Masic, who made live broadcasts during the 14th Winter Olympic Games in Sarajevo in 1984 and documentaries about children during the war siege in Sarajevo.
In the documentary the roles are played by the authentic characters. The story tells the drama of the city of Sarajevo before the eyes of the world by combining different periods and places in Sarajevo in 1984, 1992, 1993, 1994 and Washington D.C. 2000. The resemblance to personalities and events is intentional. Today, and what is today, Nebojsa Malic lives and studies in the United States, as well as thousands of young people from Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
