!f ² : Istanbul Live; A pioneering film distribution project that connects cities and countries!

WHAT IS !f ² ?

!f ² is a ground – breaking alternative film distribution and sharing project which was the first of its kind in the world. Each year, !f ² takes 5 festival films, selected from the !f Istanbul line-up to numerous cities in Turkey and the greater region that have limited access to alternative films. Our partner Mediatriple provides the technical substructure that allows for high quality public viewing in these locations. This year, more than 30 partners from around Turkey as well as in Nicosia and Gyumri will screen five festival films simultaneously as Istanbul in their respective cities on the last three days of !f Istanbul.

WHO ARE !f ² PARTNERS?

The !f ² program is created by the !f staff; our partners –ranging from from art initiatives, universities, NGOs and cultural organizations to dedicated individuals - undertake organizing the screenings in their location. This volunteer-based collaboration grows each year. If you would like to be a part of it and organize !f ² in your city please contact us.

SCREENINGS AND DISCUSSIONS

Mediatriple works in collaboration with !f ² to allow our partners access to five festival films. Our partners then screen these films in digital format with high video and audio quality. Q&A sessions with directors following the screenings are also webcast live on !f Istanbul’s website. Audiences in different cities are thus able to watch and take part in the discussions.
