2016 Official Announcement

2016 has proven to be a difficult year for Turkey. 

It’s always been dark times like these however, where true artists have brought to the forefront their most evocative works, their raison d’être—serving as a mirror, reflecting our humanity back onto ourselves. 

In this regard, Turkish cinema remains as reactive and as prolific as it’s ever been.  

This is why, especially this year, the VTFF Committee is even more elated and proud in announcing the 3rd Annual Vancouver Turkish Film Festival, set to to take place once more at Vancity Theatre, this upcoming November 25 – 27

Over the next months, we’ll be sharing exciting news and updates pertaining to our Official 2016 Selection, as well as the Special Events we’re getting ready to host throughout the year. 

In staying true to our mission of showcasing the best of contemporary Turkish cinema, we ask again for your support in spreading the love. We need it now more than ever. 

We hope to see all of you at VTFF in late November.


VTFF Director Hakan Burcuoğlu
