!f Istanbul celebrates the ninth year of the !f Inspired International Film Competition, dedicated to discovering and honouring emerging new talents in cinema since its inaugural year. Open to first/second time directors from around the world, !f Inspired aims to highlight films which push the boundaries of cinema and explore new stylistic tendencies. The competition offers a $10 thousand cash prize and will be judged by a five-person jury of inspiring members of the international and Turkish film community, who will pick the year's 'Most Inspired Director'. Spanning so many different countries and investigating the latest trends, with nine sui generis fares, !f Inspired films could be the most exciting yet strangest group this year!
