The jury gave the FIPRESCI Prize in the International Golden Tulip Competition to All Of A Sudden by Aslı Özge, for presenting “an acute analysis of the surprising turns in the life of a young man when a crisis occurs that turns him into an outcast in his own society. We especially value the director’s masterful control of visual and sound design.”
The jury gave the FIPRESCI Prize in the National Golden Tulip Competition Award to Motherland by Senem Tüzen “for its ability to get universal meaning through its cinematic language, depicting the human pursuit of freedom and identity.”

Dust Cloth by Ahu Ozturk

The 35th Istanbul Film Festival Award winner was chosen by film critic Vladan Petkovic. The Award was given to the film Dust Cloth, directed by Ahu Öztürk, from the National Golden Tulip Competition. Vladan Petkovic stated the motivation "Through a simple story of two women, the director examines the social, cultural, and economic contrasts of the modern Turkish society with a piercing precision. Excellent acting and realistic approach simultaneously give the audience an opportunity to reflect on the situation and feel empathy towards the full-blooded characters."
