(This is a full list of films produced in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The country came into existence in April 1992. For an A-Z list see Category:Bosnia and Herzegovina films)

Cinema in Bosnia practically first dates back to 1992, when the country gained its independence. Because Bosnia and Herzegovina was part of Yugoslavia prior to that, all movies in that region were credited as being produced in Yugoslavia, and not in their respective countries, regardless of the producers or director. Wikipedia thus has a full list of movies from 1992.

Cinema in Bosnia as part of Yugoslavia dates back to the 1920s when it started producing silent films. Bosnia and Herzegovina now has one of the biggest and premiere film festivals in Europe; the Sarajevo Film Festival (SFF), established in 1995 by Mirsad Purivatra, who still presides as the president of the festival. The festival now is the biggest and most influential in South-Eastern Europe. It has hosted such greats as Steve Buscemi, Katrin Cartlidge, Bono, Nick Nolte, Michael Moore, Alexander Payne, and many more. Another undoubtedly notable festival is the annual Bosnian-Herzegovinian Film Festival (BHFF) established in 2003, held in the TriBeCa area of New York City. The festival's aim is to promote movies from various young promising directors in Bosnia and showcase them to the American public in hopes of getting recognition.

Arguably the two most famous and celebrated Bosnian directors are Danis Tanović and Jasmila Žbanić, who directed No Man's Land and Grbavica, respectively. No Man's Land won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, among 42 other awards, while Grbavica won the Golden Bear at the 2006 Berlin Film Festival, and countless other awards. The country has many more respected and internationally-renowned filmmakers, including Stefan Arsenejevic whose 2003 short film Atorzija was nominated for the Best Short Film, Live Action Academy Award in 2003, and Pjer Žalica whose 2004 film Fuse won a substantial amount of European and international awards.
