Şarköy’ün Geleceği Platformu’nun davetiyle katıldığım, Namık Kemal Üniversitesi Şarköy Meslek Yüksek Okulu Konferans Salonu’nda, 5 Mayıs Salı günü düzenlenen etkinlik benim için çok özel ve heyecan vericiydi.

Kısa belgesellerim 8’den 8’e SAHİLDEKİLER ve Metruk’un gösteriminin ardından  filmlerimle ilgili soruları cevapladım ve kısa film üzerine konuştuk.

I was invited for the “Short Film Screening & Book Signing Event” which was organized by the Şarköy’s Future Platform on Tuesday, 5 May 2015 at the Namık Kemal University Şarköy Vocational School Conference Hall.

After the screenings of my short documentaries (Coastlanders 8 to 8 and the Abandoned) I answered the questions.

This event was very special and exciting for me not only for the my first public book signing, but also book reading (Lamia-CONSANGUINITY) in front of the audience.

Thanks a lot for their kindly invitation and hospitalization to Ms. Işın Neslihan Domaniç, Ms. Ebru Camgöz (Şarköy’s Future Platform); Mr. Elman Bahar (Vocational School Manager), Mr. Rıdvan Demir (Vocational School Secretary), the students and Şarköy residents who attended the event.
