International Women Filmmakers Festival Turkey

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