The Adana Golden Boll Festival is going one step further in celebrating film by preparing to host its first cinema congress.

“This is a very important congress, which will support world and Turkish cinema, and we are waiting for 40 scholars to attend this event,” Adana Municipality’s deputy mayor Zihni Aldrımaz said, speaking to the Doğan news agency, or DHA.

The congress, which will take place in between Sept. 21-24, will be at the Adana Seyhan Hotel. The congress will cover forums and seminars on Turkish cinema and the place of politics and problems in Turkish cinema.

“The congress will gather cinema theorists, directors and producers together,” said Adırmaz.

The congress will host an exclusive seminar titled “Yılmaz Güney Exclusive Forum” on Sept. 24.

Aldrımaz said it was perhaps the first time in the world that a festival was organizing a congress, noting that this will open a new perception in Turkish cinema. Seminars of the congress will be gathered in a book.
