This is the first year of the Los Angeles Turkish Film Festival. The fest is bringing Turkish independent filmmakers to Hollywood. Although they only accepted short films as submissions this year (they will be screening finalist short films), they have also hand-selected prominent Turkish feature films to screen during the festival, including Semih Kaplanoglu's "Honey" (a snippet of which many of us saw and LOVED at VisionFest 2011) and Dervis Zaim's "Shadows and Faces". The festival is going to be at the historical Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, between March 1st and March 4th, 2012. You can find further information about the festival on their website: www.latff.org
Turkish cinema is truly amazing and I strongly suggest you don't miss this inaugural year!
See you all there!
