This year’s program continues the tradition of highlighting emerging and established Turkish filmmakers with several appearances by guest directors. Most of the films in the program make their North America or US premieres in the festival. The festival opens with 61 Days (İftarlık Gazoz), a charming story from the Aegean by filmmaker Yüksel Aksu. Acclaimed actor and director Uğur Yücel receives this year’s Boston Turkish Film Festival Excellence in Turkish Cinema Award at an ceremony following the screening of Mr. Muhsin (Muhsin Bey), a Turkish cinema classic. The festival concludes with prominent Turkish auteur Zeki Demirkubuz’s lastest film, Ember (Kor).
All films are in Turkish with English subtitles unless otherwise noted. Programmed by Erkut Gömülü, founder and director of the Boston Turkish Film Festival. Co-presented by the Turkish American Cultural Society of New England.
