Boston Turkish Festival Documentary and Short Film Competition provides a rare opportunity for filmmakers to have a platform in the USA for their films to reach an international audience as well as film critics. The first of its kind organized in North America and celebrating its 12th year in 2017, the competition has already transformed to a great tradition where Bostonians are able to explore works of the emerging filmmakers first hand.
Last year we received 350 films submitted from various countries. Over the years we have received submissions from numerous countries including Armenia, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Holland, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, S. Korea, Nepal, Norway, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, UK, USA, and Venezuela.
After a careful elimination process, each year about 40 short films and documentaries are selected as finalists, and screened at the Museum of Fine Arts, Goethe-Institut Boston, and Boston University.
Members of this year's Competition Jury include:
Peter Keough, Film Critic
Carter Long, Katharine Stone White Curator of Film, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
Jeremy Rossen, Curator, Harvard Film Archive
