About

Founded in 2011 by a group of film enthusiasts, directors and industry workers, the Vancouver Turkish Film Festival is a collaborative effort that aims to showcase a variety of Turkish films. Last year’s festival, held at the Vancity Theatre in January, spanned three successive days. The Festival was well received and the majority of film screenings were sold out. Both Turkish and local media recognized the event, publishing a number of positive reviews.

This year’s festival will take place on March 18th & 19th, at the SFU Woodward’s Goldcorp Centre for the Arts Cinema. We believe that the increased seating capacity provided by this new venue will lead to an even greater turnout at this event.

The VTFF takes pride in showcasing the best of contemporary Turkish cinema, featuring both popular mainstream favourites and internationally acclaimed, award-winning films. As a “melting pot” of many cultures for thousands of years, Turkey has so much to offer from a cultural sense, and the 3rd Annual Vancouver Turkish Film Festival is one of the ways to share Turkey’s deep-rooted multicultural heritage with residents of Metro Vancouver.

We are proud to bring the best of Turkish Cinema to meet the growing demand for international cinema in this diverse city. The Vancouver Turkish Film Festival is being organized by the Canadian Turkish Society (TCS), a charity organization that continues to increase the public’s knowledge of contemporary and traditional Turkish art and culture. Please come and share our culture through films at the SFU Woodward’s Cinema on March 18 and 19, 2016.
