New !f² takes off in Turkey

February 09, 2018

The New !f² programme is created by !f Istanbul and the New Film Fund. It involves a year-round film screening and discussion programme. Every last Saturday of the month (except in June, July and August) films with different themes from Turkey and the Middle East are shown in more than 40 places in Turkey, as well as in Nicosia, Palestine and Iran, expectedly reaching thousands of visitors. Academics and other artists will be involved in the workshops, masterclasses and talks after the screenings. Topics of the presented films include freedom of expression, censorship, conflict resolution and forced migration. The New !f² programme is expected to take off in February 2018.

New !f² is one of the 21 projects that were supported by Movies that Matter in 2017. We promote human rights film events in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East, by offering grants, advice and training for organisers of film events and festivals.
