The 16th Filmekimi, organized by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), will be bringing cinephiles in seven different cities together with outstanding films between Sept. 29 and Oct. 8. The festival will travel to six more cities during October.
Tickets for the event will be on sale as of Sept. 23 at Beyoğlu Atlas and Kadıköy Rexx cinemas as well as Biletix sales channels. Ticket sales in other cities will be made through the Biletix sales channels and from the box offices at the selected cinemas one day before the screenings begin.
Organizing screenings outside of Istanbul since 2011, Filmekimi will continue to present the best and most up-to-date films of the year to cinema lovers in different cities of Turkey, outreaching Istanbul.

Filmekimi will also bring film and music lovers together with two different concerts this year. The first will take place at Salon İKSV on Oct. 2 with Igorrr, the French breakcore genius and producer Gautier Serre’s project. He pushes the musical and mental boundaries bringing together metal music fans together with electronic music lovers. Igorrr has also made the soundtrack of the unconventional musical Jeanette–The Childhood of Joan of Arc, directed by Bruno Dumont.
Filmekimi’s closing concert will be given by Cümbüş Cemaat at Salon İKSV on Oct. 8. Cümbüş Cemaat is a band inspired by Balkan music, including rembetiko. It will be joined by Melik Şah from Baba Zula.
