  • Sarajevo Cinema Club (Kino klub Sarajevo). A group of film buffs founded the Club in order to "spread the culture of love for the cinema." Among the club's first authors were Mirko Komosar, Amir Hadžidedić, Nikola and Velimir Stojanović, Zlatko Lavanić, Mirza Idrizović; later they were joined by Ivica Matić and Vesko Kadić. The expansion of the Sarajevo television network provided them with opportunities for professional work in documentary and feature films, which led to the gradual decline of this most influential cinema club in Sarajevo. Some technically proficient 16 mm experimental and short feature films were produced by the club, some of which also exist as 35 mm copies. In 1967, the club members started a film magazine Sineast, which is still being published today.
  • 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.
  • Academic Photo Cinema Club Sarajevo (Akademski foto-kino klub Sarajevo). The third Sarajevo filmmakers' club was founded in 1967 as the film section of the Sarajevo University Academic Photo Club. The club premises were located in Marsal Tito Street, just as the premises of several other student clubs, whose members would participate in the Club's rilms as actors, visual artists, musicians, and photographers. After numerous creative discussions the first film, Žed [Thirst], was produced in 1968.
