The New York Turkish Film Festival on December 12-15, 2019 at the SVA Theatre in New York

The American Turkish Society's signature cultural event, the New York Turkish Film Festival will take place between December 12-15, 2019 at the SVA Theatre in New York. This year's Festival showcases a selection of five feature films, one documentary and four short films, bringing the best of contemporary Turkish cinema to you.  This unique selection represents this year’s Festival theme: “Contemporary Struggles”. We live in times of constant change, of continuous tensions, in times where building walls and barriers seems like the answer to pressing issues. Yet, problems can only be solved through dialogue and cinema can be a strong and beautiful tool to create that dialogue.
