Turkey has a rich cinematic history dating back to 1914 when the first Turkish feature film was produced. During the 1960's, Turkey enjoyed its golden era and was among the top five film production countries of the world. Now, a new wave of exciting directors and filmmakers are taking the world by storm. Among them are the esteemed Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Ferzan Özpetek and Fatih Akın whose films have established a significant international fanbase. We’re proud to present a dynamic selection of Turkish feature films and documentaries to our 2017 festival season. With premieres and special events in Sydney and Melbourne, our festival is made possible with the support of ATMA - The Australian Turkish Mutual Alliance. ATMA is a not for profit organisation established to enhance the deep, existing bond Australians and Turks share.
