Festival to Shed Light on ‘Unknown Cinemas’

Between the dates of May 11-17 Istanbul will host the Bilinmeyen Sinemalar (Unknown Cinemas) film festival, an event presenting films from a range of lesser developed countries that neither are able to have theatrical release abroad, nor are widely featured in the international festival circuit.

The event will be held on the sidelines of the upcoming Fourth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries, scheduled for May 9-13 in Istanbul.

A total of 35 feature films from the likes of Senegal, Burkina Faso, Bengal and Bhutan will be screened free of charge in a range of venues including the Beyoğlu Cinema, the Tarık Zafer Tunaya Cultural Center and the Moda Cinema in Kadıköy, the Anatolia news agency reported this week.
