With its 19th edition kicking off last night, London Turkish Film Festival celebrates a triumphant year for Turkish cinema. Following on from the last Berlinale, which included 4 films in its official selection, and Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s Winter Sleep competing for the Palme d’Or, but also because 2104 marks the centenary of Turkish cinema.
 
On the opening night the audience had the chance to watch UK’s premeire of Mahmut Fazıl Coskun΄s award winning Yozgat Blues and to see legendary actress Serra Yilmaz get the Golden Wings Lifetime Achievement Award for her distinguished contribution to Turkish cinema both in Turkey and Italy.

London Turkish Film Festival was inaugurated in 1993, and since then it has been a vital event in the London cultural scene. Now in its 19th year, the festival has grown from a small three-day event to a full-scale two week Festival with an inclusive approach towards programming, providing a platform in the UK for a new generation of film-makers of Turkish origin who live and work in Western Europe. The Festival has also featured programmes of short films, giving the opportunity to the young filmmakers and their feature or documentary works to be seen by a wider audience.
