No introductions needed for Festival on Wheels. The extraordinary, nomadic festival returns for its 19th edition from 27th November to 9th December 2013.

Festival on Wheels, a cinematic caravan that travels to various cities in Turkey aims as always to present outstanding examples of cinema to film enthusiasts in different places around Turkey and to introduce Turkish cinema to the rest of the world. 

This year the journey begins in Edremit on 27th November, before moving on to Ankara for more screenings between 29th November-5th December and travelling finally to Sinop from 6th-9th December. Screenings in Ankara will take place at the Kızılay Büyülü Fener Cinema, the Goethe Institut and the Contemporary Arts Centre (Çağdaş Sanatlar Merkezi).

The 19th edition of Festival on Wheels, as every past one, is once more full of interesting and important sections, one better than the other. Among them, altcine presents you the balkan one! The Turkish Cinema section, a selection of Turkish films made in 2013, which promises to bring audiences the cast and director of featured titles at gala performances during the Festival.

This year΄s outstanding Turkish films are:
Nobody΄s Home (Köksüz) by Deniz Akcay Katiksiz,  Thou Gild΄st the Even (Sen Aydınlatırsın Geceyi) by Onur Unlu,Eye Am (Gözümün Nûru), co-directed byHakki Kurtulus and Melik Saracoglu, and Ramin Matin΄s  The Impeccables (Kusursuzlar)
Furthermore two dramatic features that screened at this year΄s Berlin Film Festival, Jin by Reha Erdem and Cold (Soğuk) by Ugur Yucel are also included in the line-up.

The festival will also present the Master class: Actors through the Eyes of Actors where the aclaimed Turkish director, Zeki Demirkubuz and the Turkish film actor Taner Birsel will evaluate in two separate master class       
will evaluate screen performances picked out from different films. The sessions are open to all and will be host in Ankara during the festival. 

Finally we couldn΄t possibly pass over the one-day tribute to honour the memory of the great actor, scriptwriter and director
Tuncel Kurtiz, a dear and loyal friend of the Festival since the very beginning. The event will open Festival on Wheels in Edremit and the line-up will include screenings of Hasan the Rose (Gül Hasan), the dramatic feature Kurtiz directed in 1979, Shimon Dotan΄s The Smile of the Lamb (Hiuch Hagdi), which earned Kurtiz a Silver Bear at Berlin for Best Actor in 1986 and a documentary entitled Tuncel Kurtiz: a Trusted Travel Companion of the Festival on Wheels. This newly made documentary is based on a compilation of archive material from the Festival on Wheels archive with contributions from close friends of the veteran filmmaker.
