Dear Pera Film Followers,

“The Queer Shorts” film program organized by British Council and Pink Life KuirFest scheduled to take place at Pera Museum’s auditorium on Saturday 25 November, has been postponed due to the sentence numbered 2017/2284 and dated 24 November, served today to the Pera Museum by the Beyoğlu District Governor.

Pera Film is hosting Queer Shorts organized by British Council and Pink Life KuirFest. British Council and KuirFest have developed an LGBTI+ short film competition for filmmakers from Turkey to give them an opportunity to be showcased in Turkey, in the UK and internationally and to developed a platform of expression.

The 10 short films will meet with the audience on Saturday, November 25 at Pera Film. The directors of the jury award and people’s award travel to London to attend BFI Flare’s Film Festival in March 2018.

There will be a talk after the screening with the jury, director Umit Unal, producer Gavin Humphries and Pera Museum’s film and video programs curator Fatma Çolakoğlu.

This program’s screenings are free of admissions. Drop in, no reservations.

Memory Building Memories / Memory Room / Memento Mori

Memory Building Memories / Memory Room / Memento Mori

Each memory tells an intimate story; each collection presents us with the reality of containing an intimate story as well. The collection is akin to a whole in which many memories and stories of the artist, the viewer, and the collector are brought together. At the heart of a collection is memory, nurtured from the past and projecting into the future.
