Applications open for Antalya Film Festival
ISTANBULApplications have opened for the 53rd International Antalya Film Festival, which will be held from Oct. 16 to 23 this year. The deadline for the national competition, short film selection and the Antalya Film Support Fund is Aug. 19 and the deadline for the international competition is Aug. 26.
Last year the festival committee broadened the scope of the National Feature Film Competition. Besides feature films, documentary, experimental or animation feature films can be submitted to the festival, too. The prize for the best film award in this category will be 100,000 Turkish Liras.
The films included in the National Short Films will be shown before the screening of the international competition films. Also, a special documentary selection will be in the film program. One film in each section will be voted on by the public for the Viewers Award.
The Antalya Film Support Fund, which aims to make the city one of the important locations in the international film industry, will give a 100,000-lira award to its winner.
