Countdown to 23rd Istanbul International Short Film Fest

After weeks of waiting, the Istanbul International Short Film Festival, a celebration of short films from all over the world, is set to kick off on Wednesday at 8 p.m. at the French Cultural Center in Taksim.

Now celebrating its 23rd edition, the festival, which runs through Nov. 30 at a number of central venues, including the Dutch Chapel, the French Cultural Center and the German Culture Center, not only opens up the way for a magical and informative cinematic journey for Istanbul audiences but also provides a dynamic networking platform for young directors on both a national and international scale.

The guest speaker at the opening reception this year will be Turkish director, screenwriter and author Ümit Ünal, who will be delivering a speech on the “Art of Cinema and Short Film.”
