Description

There is life beyond chick flicks! Offering the public a feminist perspective on women, their lives, and their problems, the Filmmor Film Festival has become both a cultural and a social project. The movies, all directed or produced by women, run in Istanbul’s French Cultural Center every spring. Their objectives, as stated by the festival’s organizers, are to promote women in cinema, to spread a non-sexist representation of women and their problems, and to fight against discrimination in cinema and society in general. Most of the movies will be in Turkish, with English subtitles to accommodate foreign guests. Workshops with the organizers and the filmmakers will be organized and photo exhibitions on themes such as Women in Istanbul, Honor, and Women through Women’s Eyes complement the activities of the festival.
