Posted on July 30, 2011

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt made a surprise appearance at the Sarajevo Film Festival, where Angelina won the honorary Heart of Sarajevo Award.

Wearing a peach colored gown by Elie Saab and Tiffany jewels, Angelina teared up telling the crowd she was worried that she would cry. She said, "I told Brad I was afraid I was going to cry...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, I am so honored to be here at this festival. There is no greater example of the strengths of the artists and the festival that began during the war and grew stronger every year."

Angelina directed her first feature film In the Land of Blood and Honey, which is set in Bosnia. The film will be released in December. Here is video shot by someone in the audience at the Sarajevo National Theatre. Take a look:
