Our partnership network throughout Turkey is gaining a whole new dimension! The spirit of the cinematheque is adapted to the 21st century in an innovative way: hotly debated current, alternative films will be screened and discussed in 33 cities, 50 locations at the same time!
The digital festival that !f Istanbul has brought to Turkey and neighbouring countries for nine years now is expanding in collaboration with the New Film Fund.
The New !f² series presents eight screenings spread throughout the year. A selection of films will be shown in all New !f² venues at the same time. Live conversations with filmmakers and guests will be broadcast at the New !f² venues in Turkey, Northern Cyprus, Iran and Israel-Palestine.
HERE WE GO!
To Women, To Life!
DATE: 24 / 25 February 2018
New !f² launches with a special celebration of five films and a focus on women’s stories. Set in Iran, Sadaf Foroughi’s acclaimed AVA explores teenage girlhood determined to burst open even in the most conﬁ ning of environments. Dancing Girls continues the exploration of girl friendships. Brett Morgan’s popular film charts the eventful life of iconic chimpanzee champion Jane Goodall. The award-winning short animation The Wicked confronts us with the fragile yet unbreakable soul of little girls. Confrontation, by acclaimed Turkish documentary maker Nejla Demirci, wraps our focus on women’s issues today.
