Filmmor Women's Film Festival
12th International Filmmor Women's Film Festival on Wheels

March 16 - March 23, 2014

The independent International Filmmor Women's Film Festival on Wheels, which organized by women for the women, which does not have any links but solidarity, is to get a start for the 12th time in Istanbul and for the first time in Adana, Mersin and Bodrum, Mugla.

Focusing on the theme “A Purse, An Income, A Budget of Her Own” this year, the festival will cover 60 films from 22 countries, thematic screenings and retrospectives as well as opening and closing ceremonies, panel discussions, workshops and discussions.

A new section will meet with the audience this year: Kaleidoscope. While the festival had screened the films of women directors only until this year, this new section will host a male director and his film to have a discussion on.

Filmmor Women’s Cooperative, established exclusively by women in 2003 and open only to women, is here to do cinema, to contest, to produce, to dream and to act for women, together with women!

Screenings can be seen with a discounted museum ticket (5 TL). No reservations taken.

Fluid Identities  Creating an Identity / Hybrid Identities

Fluid Identities Creating an Identity / Hybrid Identities

A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards. Today, the collection can be considered one of the most important and outstanding examples among the rare, consciously created, and long-lasting ones of its kind in Turkey.

Giacometti in Paris

Giacometti in Paris

The second part of exhibition illustrates Alberto Giacometti’s relations with Post-Cubist artists and the Surrealist movement between 1922 and 1935, one of the important sculptures series he created during his first years in Paris, and the critical role he played in the art scene of the period.

Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests

Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests

Between 1963 and 1966 Andy Warhol worked at making film portraits of all sorts of characters linked to New York art circles. Famous people and anonymous people were filmed by Andy Warhol’s 16 mm camera, for almost four minutes, without any instructions other than ‘to get in front of the camera’.
