Cinemania
37th Istanbul Film Festival

April 6 - 17, 2018

Pera Film is hosting 37th Istanbul Film Festival! As part of the festival Pera Film will be screening the National Short Film Competition, National Documentary Competition and the program Cinemania, as well as other screenings.

Originated from the love for the art of filmmaking, this section is constructed on “the passion for cinema,” “cinephilia,” and “Cinemania.” A portmanteau section, “Cinemania” comprises the highlights, the landmarks and milestones, the unforgettables of the world of cinema: masterpieces of a career, in memoriam or in celebration; restored classics, lost films, cult movies, films on films, and surprises…
