17th !f Istanbul Independent Film Festival

2018-02-15 19:00:00 2018-02-25 13:30:00 Europe/Istanbul 17th !f Istanbul Independent Film Festival

The 17th edition of the !f Istanbul Independent Film Festival, featuring screenings, competitions, panels, and more, will take place from February 15-25 in Istanbul and March 1-4 in Ankara and İzmir. 

From unflinching dramas to heart-warming comedies to heart-wrenching documentaries, !f Istanbul brings its viewers a diverse mix of films that reveal humanity’s condition through the eyes of talented filmmakers.

The Florida Project, an American film directed by Sean Baker, is centered around a six-year-old girl, her friends, and her single mother who build their ordinary, fascinating lives around a motel complex close to Walt Disney World. Praised as a must-see film that captures the themes of childhood and poverty with authenticity, this movie is expected to move crowds to tears and fill the cinema with laughter. 

I am Not a Witch, written and directed by Rungano Nyoni, is a bewildering film about a young girl who is accused of being a witch by her Zambian village. With a focus on themes surrounding African womanhood, the film blends together the cultural beauties and difficulties such as superstition, social structures, and misogyny. This haunting, funny, and authentic satire characterizes the director as a filmmaker with whose autobiographical stories will captivate her audience. 

Directed by John Cameron Mitchell and based on a short story by UK author Neil Gaiman, How to Talk to Girls at Parties is a science fiction romantic comedy set in 1977 London. It revolves around an encounter between a group of rowdy teenage boys and mysterious, beautiful intergalactic beings. The costume design and soundtrack make this film stand out and viewers are sure to enjoy this light-hearted love story with a surprising genre mix. 

 

The 17th !f Istanbul Independent Film Festival will take place at various Cinemaximum locations. Tickets will be available for online purchase on Biletix starting February 3, 2018.
