Vancouver International and Independent Cinema Group Message Board › 1ST VANCOUVER TURKISH FILM FESTIVAL
|A former member||
We are delighted to announce the first Vancouver Turkish Film Festival! The festival is being presented by the Turkish Canadian Society; co-sponsored by Langara College. Langara College is playing a major role by contributing the use of their 5 movie theaters.
Turkey historically ─ and currently, has been a bridge between Asia and Europe. Turkish cinema, dating back to 1914, combines Europe’s artistic sensibilities with the colorful complexities of the Middle East. Over the last decade, Turkish filmmakers, not only in Turkey, but also those living around the world, have established new creative directions. As a result, their films have won many international awards.
The film screenings of this inaugural Vancouver Turkish Film Festival will take place on Sunday, November 20th, 2011, at Langara College, 100 West 49th Avenue in Vancouver, BC. It is going to be an exciting day packed with 12 award-winning movies to choose from. We believe there will be a film to match everyone’s interest.
Along with the film screenings, there will be a vibrant Turkish marketplace located in Langara College’s main foyer. Please visit and explore the food and the culture.
We are honoured to bring Vancouver the best of Turkish cinema!
