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

March 16 - 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.
