Istanbul International Short Film Festival is the longest running and most experienced organization among the international short film festivals in Turkey.
Short film is a medium based on making best of limited time within the frame of cinema art and gives the directors the opportunity of expressing their talents in the most unique way. The In this perspective the Festival aims to support short film and to provide young filmmakers to present their work both on national and international platforms.
The Festival had been started by a group of young enthusiasts on national level and showcased only films produced in Turkey. In years it has attracted a big interest and became an international organization in 1988.
As an un-interrupted organization of 38 years, the Festival is a unique example of its kind.
The Festival is organized each November and through its one-week-course around 200 distinguished short films from Turkey and the world are screened to filmlovers. Experienced filmmakers, professionals share their experiences through Q&A's and workshops.
Until today, around 5400 short films have been screened, 1150 guests have attended the festival, 550 Q&A's and 33 workshops have been organized.
The international section consists of only film screenings; there is no competition within this section. Films are selected through a process of focused evaluation process from both the direct applications and also from the films provided by film centers of different countries. These films are being presented to the audience with Turkish subtitles in three different theaters where the directors are ready for an Q&A afterwards.
Festival catalogues of each year provide an important reference for cinematic memory.

WELCOME TO WIFF-2016
Woodpecker International Film Festival (WIFF) is India's premier competitive film festival focusing on issue-based cinema. The first edition of the festival was organised in 2013 at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. Launched in the backdrop of the completion of 100 years of Indian Cinema, the festival was a tribute to the Indian cinema for its ability to nurture diverse genres of films and filmmaking traditions in the country.
Today, Cinema is at an important crossroad. While the distinction between mainstream and parallel cinema is almost getting blurred, a new breed of alternative filmmakers, successfully blending entertainment and meaningful cinema, is taking ground. Woodpecker International Film Festival (WIFF) aims to showcase this rich mélange of visual creativity to promote films and filmmakers focusing on socially pertinent themes.
WHY THIS FESTIVAL & FORUM?
The last one decade in India has seen tremendous changes particularly on communication and technological fronts. With easy accessibility to new technology and availability of new communication channels, reach and impact of visual messages has grown significantly, both in rural and urban areas. Be it short films, documentaries or social advertisements, they have now become an immensely powerful tool of communications aimed towards bringing desired social change. WFF thus would like to comprehensively cover the wide spectrum of issues that have caught the attention of new breed of filmmakers in the recent past, be it gender, public health or environment. A major attraction of the film festival would be forum activities. Seminars, conferences, workshops and master classes to help filmmakers and film enthusiasts explore contemporary issues, network with professional associates, hone their filmmaking skills and share the power of storytelling through cinema.
The festival and forum is part of the 'Cinema for Change' initiative of CMSR Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation based in New Delhi. The Foundation, a registered body under the Indian Trust Act, has been established to harness the power of information, education and communications to bring positive social change.

When communities are caught in the depths of conflict and oppression, and survival becomes part of everyday life, why do people continue to create? When arms and air raids, ceasefires and aid fail to bring an end to such situations, what can art offer and what can it change?
CREATE Film Festival seeks to examine and explore the issue of creativity in sites of conflict; to offer a unique opportunity to see not only the different ways in which creativity can fuel change, but the truly exceptional talent that exists in some of the world’s most challenging contexts, where people have to think creatively about everything in order to survive.
Creativity as resistance; as understanding; as peace building; as voice; as messenger; as an alternative. Film In Place of War.
