!f’s signature section, !f Inspired, is dedicated to discovering new auteurs in contemporary cinema. This year, nine innovative and boundary-pushing ﬁlms from ﬁrst- and second-time directors from around the world are on offer. !f Inspired aims to highlight ﬁlms which use new forms of cinematic language and give exciting perspectives on content and form. The competition offers a $5,000 cash prize and will be judged by a ﬁve-person jury of inspiring members of the international and Turkish ﬁlm community. They will select the year’s Most Inspired Director. Spanning different geographies and investigating the latest trends, this year’s eight !f Inspired ﬁlms may just be the most diverse and exciting collection yet!
