MOONDANCE 2015 CALL-FOR-ENTRIES
MOONDANCE IN INTERNATIONAL NEWS:
In 2014, Turkish films produced with Culture and Tourism Ministry incentives made Turkey’s name heard at leading international film festivals
The Culture and Tourism Ministry has doubled its incentives for Turkish cinema compared to last year, paying out nearly 27 million Turkish Liras to new film projects. In recent years, cinema has become a significant tool boosting Turkey’s recognition in the international arena. This led the ministry to double the incentives for the Turkish cinema sector in order to increase the quality and number of Turkish productions that frequently return from the world’s leading film festivals, such as Cannes, Berlin and Rotterdam with awards.
At the 15th Moondance Film Festival, organized in the Colorado city of Boulder, another ministry-supported project, “Kelebeğin Rüyası” (The Butterfly’s Dream), swept the awards. Directed by Yılmaz Erdoğan, the film won a best (feature) film award. Also, its music by Rahman Altın won a best film score award, and actor Mert Fırat won a best actor award at the festival.
