Turkish Cinema to be promoted In The Berlinale!
The Turkish section of the European Film Market, organized by the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism, is set to exhibit feature-length fictional and documentary films, as well as short-length films produced or still being produced in 2020-2021.
"Foreign Film Production Support" took effect with the New Cinema Law and now provides foreign filmmakers with a refund of up to 30 per cent of what they've spent in Turkey. The support will also be reserved for international cinema professionals. With the planned supports, Turkey, a truly natural stage, expects to boost its competitiveness in this field and plans to reorient itself into a significant filming hub.
