Filmekimi Film Fest tickets to go on sale
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily NewsTickets for the Filmekimi film festival, a fall tradition in Istanbul and other Turkish cities, will go on sale starting tomorrow.
Now in its 11th year, Filmekimi brings a wide selection of award-winning films and the latest works by master filmmakers to not only Istanbul, but also several other Turkish cities.
This year, 39 films that have been screened and honored at prestigious festivals around the world will be shown at the event. For those in Istanbul, Filmekimi is presenting its rich and colorful content to cinephiles from Sept. 29 to Oct. 7 at three Istanbul movie theaters – Atlas, Beyoğlu and Nişantaşı Citylife (City’s).
This year, however, the festival is also reaching further beyond Istanbul and bringing the best and the most recent examples of movies to eight different cities in Turkey. A special selection, including some films shown at the 31st Istanbul Film Festival last April, as well as a selection from the 11th Filmekimi program, will be presented in Bursa, İzmir, Ankara, Erzurum, Diyarbakır and Gaziantep. Also, there will be free screenings in Van and Batman. Last year the project showed films in five cities in addition to Istanbul.
The Istanbul leg of Filmekimi is being organized by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) with the sponsorship of Vodafone FreeZone.
