Boston Turkish Festival: Documentary & Short Film Competition

This series gives a rare opportunity to view contemporary documentaries and short films by emerging directors of the Turkish cinema, as well as international film-makers’ documentaries and short films about subjects relevant to cultural landscape of Turkey. The screenings of contemporary Turkish documentaries over the past years, as a part of the annual Boston Turkish Festival, has been transformed this year to a competition, also including short films. This will be the first Turkish Documentary and Short Film Competition in North America.  All eligible films will compete for awards that include Best Documentary Film and Best Short Film. A jury comprised of professionals will determine the winners. Attendees will also vote for the Audience Award winners for the Best Documentary and Best Short Film. Ballots will be handed out prior to each screening and submitted while exiting the theater.

This program is co-presented with the 11th annual Boston Turkish Festival. For more information, please visit www.BostonTurkishFestival.org
