Women's film festival

Each year at march , the Women's Film Festival is taking part here , in Istanbul.
"The Purple Workshop" is the place that has been organising this activity since 5 years ago.
The purpose of their establishment , was to increase women's visibility and participation in cinema and to encourage their film making projects.
This workshop has really done a huge work in those last 5 years.
Each year the festivals main theme changes , this year the main theme is about "honour and virginity" and the problems and tragedies caused because of the its doctrines.
Films from different countries are available in the festival , like Iran,Mexico,Netherlands-Marrakesch , Italy,Spain,Germany,Canada, Palestine,Africa and this year we even have an Albanian movie as well :) Directed by Blerta Basholli "Mirror , mirror" is a film from Kosova .
This festival is being organised in other cities of Turkey as well and different activities take part during the festival such as conferences,panels, etc.Above you may find the photos of festival posters which I think are cute:)
I can't wait for Saturday to watch Blerta Basholli's movie.In fact she will participate in a discussion panel , over "Honor" theme on Sunday , at 14.30 , but alas I'll be at the airport by that time:(
Anyway I'll try to watch as much movies as I can this week.
For more information you may have a look at the workshops page which has got an english version too : www.filmmor.com

Instambul seems the place to be these past few months because there's lots of activities and entartainment:))

I wish that the Albanian movie is a good one and the audience will appreciate Blerta's work.
