2013 DOCUMENTARY AND SHORT FILM COMPETITION

ABOUT THE COMPETITION:

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 in 2006, the competition has already transformed to a great tradition where Bostonians are able to explore works of the emerging filmmakers first hand. Each year more than hundred films are submitted from numerous countries including Armenia, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Holland, Iran, Israel, Italy, S. Korea, Nepal, Norway, Turkey, Ukraine, U.K., and U.S.A.

This year we received more than 200 submissions and after a careful elimination process, 40 films were selected as finalists, which will be screened at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and Boston University.

Members of this year's Competition Jury include:
Haden Guest, Director, Harvard Film Archive
Peter Keough, Film Editor
Carter Long, Katharine Stone White Curator of Film, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

In addition to the 'Best Documentary" and "Best Short Film" Awards to be selected by the jury, we announce "Audience Awards". Ballots are distributed at the beginning of each film screening and collected in the end. Therefore, we invite all 'movie enthusiasts' to come and participate in this fun process!
