International Women Filmmakers Festival Turkey

In 2018 started as a film screening week, International Women Filmmakers Festival gained its festival and international identity just in 3 years’ time. As an independent festival IWFF Turkey aims to make woman film directors and their movies recognizable by bringing woman filmmakers and other female cinema industry workers together. Because of the fact that women continue to be disregarded in the cinema industry, IWFF also aims to support and encourage innovative and smart women by creating new networks & perspectives, finding possible funds and making space for the new coming filmmakers generation. First of week of March is deliberately chosen in order to underline the 8th of March and the significance of International Women's Day.
