Description

Every year in Ankara an effort is made to bring women’s lives into the spotlight - or more precisely on to stages and cinema screens. The Flying Broom International Women's Film Festival started as part of an initiative to promote women and their vision of the world with the aid of visual arts. Being the first women's film festival in Turkey, the event invites women directors from all over the world to compete in feature-length, short, documentary, and animation sections arranged according to specific themes, and complemented by panels and exhibitions. Women’s rights, women’s lives and stories, their understanding and their experience of the world, are all integrated in the festival’s areas of interest. And to crown their efforts, the organizers announced in 2003 that the festival was the first women’s festival in the world to have an International Feature-Length section recognized by a jury from the International Federation of Film Critiques.
