Three legendary masterpieces have also found their way to this year΄s Festival on Wheels, Three Doors Opening on Reality section. Selected by Turkish writer Murathan Mungan, Blow Up by Michelangelo Antonioni (Italy/UK/USA, 1966), Francis Coppola΄s The Conversation (USA, 1974) and Rasomon by Akira Kurosawa (Japan, 1950) can be easily described as modern classics. 

Cinema in Ottoman Times, one of the special sections of the festival, will project various archives  material shot on Ottoman territory by different filmmakers between 1896 and 1922. Curated by Elif Röngen-Kaynakçı of the EYE Film Museum in Amsterdam, and ranging from tourist-guide scenery shots to ethnographic observation, the films offer a huge diversity of insights into the period.

The festival is also presenting the 20 Years΄ Best Shorts section, the Children΄s Films section (focusing on Korea), the Short is Good section, the A Day at the Museum category and a special section dedicated to the video work of prominent contemporary artist CANAN.

Last but not least, the Let΄s Talk Cinema meetings, a kind of one-week film school aiming to bring together amateur filmmakers with professionals in a carefully put together program under the umbrella of the Festival on Wheels.
