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.
 
This organization is being run by an independent committee where Hilmi Etikan acts as the president and keeps it's respectable profile throughout the years.

3 TE/RD FFFILM PROJECT - FAMILY FICTION FILM PROJECT INSCRIÇÕES ABERTAS ATÉ 31 JULHO SUBMISSIONS UNTIL 31ST JULY DEZEMBRO / DECEMBER 2014

FFFilm Project (Family Fiction Film Project) is a cycle of video and film, which explores several possibilities around the topic of family/familiar: documentary or fiction movies about the intimate, the personal or private, family footage, home movies, self-portraits / about identities, family as a landscape, alternative families, etc.  In the era of the democratization of the use of image the objects produced are increasingly on the intimacy and in the precariousness of the production resources. There is a new way to make films and to tell stories. Public and private or global and local, stand in a constant transformation in their inter-connection at the same they have a tremendous impact on the way of producing, creating and living. We believe that at this moment, this kind of cycle is full of sense; it will be a moment for sharing ways of doing and perspectives which concerns are to do with fragility, intimacy and precarity. This cycle is open both to amateur and professional videos.
