Turkish Film Festival

Rome's Turkish Film Festival has moved to Cinema Barberini, following the first two editions at the Casa del Cinema, to facilitate the growing number of visitors, according to organisers. The event is organised by Srp Istanbul – whose honourary president is the Turkish-Italian film director and screenwriter Ferzan Özpetek – with the support of the Turkish culture ministry and Turkey's embassy to Italy. This year's festival carries the slogan Mamma them Turks and its programme comprises 15 films from the world of Turkish film, including a series of short films by young Turkish directors that will be screened in competition.
