IN ITS 10TH YEAR, THE INTERNATIONAL FILMMOR WOMEN’S FILM FESTIVAL ON WHEELS KICKS OFF IN ISTANBUL ON MARCH 9.

Coming close on the heels of World Working Women’s Day, the festival is bringing cinemaphiles a mix of films, workshops and informal chats focusing on women in social life as seen through the eyes of women. The festival, which starts in Istanbul, is also coming to earthquake-struck residents in tent cities and prefabs in the eastern city of Van through a cooperation with the Van Women’s Association Van (VAKAD). Moving on from there to Hakkari under the auspices of the Yüksekova Women’s Association, it will continue at Çanakkale in cooperation with the  Çanakkale Women’s Handicrafts Association (ELDER). The festival, which is bringing film viewers over seventy films from more than twenty countries, is noteworthy this year as Filmmor’s 10th Year Selection for Feminist Cinema. The specially selected movies of a hundred years of feminist cinema cover a period from the films of Alice Guy-Blaché, the first female director in motion Picture history, to Marleen Gorris. The International Filmmor Women’s Film Festival is one of the leading events in Turkey and the world for conveying the experience of women in everyday life through art. As always, the festival kicks off during the week of World Working Women’s Day.
