The New World view series is dedicated to Turkish cinema this year. In recent years, not only established Turkish filmmakers such as Nuri Bilge Ceylan or Semih Kaplanoglu have shown that they are capable of great things. It is specially the young Turkish cinema that has gained a lot of attention at international film festivals as well as in theaters. The films selected for this series are all first, second or third directing works. From "blockbusters" to "auteur cinema" - all the aspects of film production have their place. All the films - six feature films and a documentary, portray human relationships and family bonds in an era of social, domestic and political change, with the metropolis of Istanbul playing an important recurring role. The New World View series is curated by Nikolaj Nikitin.

In collaboration with Winterthur International Short Film Festival, we also present a block of 8 turkish short films.
