“Filming in Türkiye” Introduced at Marché du Film

Within the context of Marché du Film, while the newest and under development projects of Turkish cinema in the genres of feature films, short films and documentaries were introduced at the Türkiye booth this year, Turkish films met with those interested in the international arena.

At the festival co-production and project opportunities, which have become very important in the cinema sector due to reasons such as information and technology transfer, access to local funding sources, creating potential markets and developing promotional activities, were also discussed.

Also at the Cannes Film Festival, the "Foreign Film Production Support", which came into force with the new cinema law allowing foreign film producers to be refunded up to 30 percent of the amount they spent in Türkiye for feature films, documentaries and television series, was presented to international filmmakers.

With the support it is predicted that Türkiye, with a natural live stage feature, will increase its competitive power in this field and will become one of the important film shooting centers.
