“Women Behind the Camera” Film Screening & Panel Discussion


I was a panelist for the  4 Film Directors, 4 Films “Women Behind the Camera” Film Screening & Panel Discussion organized by 11th National Short Film Festival on  Thursday, March 28, 2013  at  Dogus University H Block Theatre Hall in Istanbul.

The other panelists were  Bilgi Diren Güneş, Gökçe Pehlivanoğlu and Simge Gökbayrak. The panel was moderated by Asst. Prof. Mustafa Bülbül ( Dogus University- Faculty of Fine Arts And Design, Department of Visual Communication Design)

First,  our short films Metruk (The Abandoned), Oh No! My Father is Retired, Pierrot the Living Statue and Trace were screened and then the panel discussion begun. We talked about our personal journey for the short film genre, our filmmaking experiences, finding fund and sponsorship  for short films.  And finally, we shared our thoughts and experiences about being a female filmmaker in the film industry and in the cinema art which are still male dominated all around the world.

Thank you for the  IKFD/Istanbul Short Filmmakers Association & Dogus University gave us this opportunity.
