Antalya to widen focus

Fest to include broad range of pics

Turkey’s top international fest, the Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival, plans to widen its focus to include a broader range of domestic productions in its lineup under newly appointed artistic director Deniz Ziya Temeltas.

Temeltas, former manager of the fest’s Eurasia Film Market and Eurasia Production Platform, said he aims to “broaden the base of Turkish films made in the past year” for the festival that opens its 47th edition on Oct. 9.

Fest, which went through a troubled stretch over the past two years when its publicly funded budget was slashed, will be better funded this year following the election of a new mayor in Antalya, Mustafa Akaydin, who also acts as fest prexy.

The Antalya municipality is a key festival sponsor, Temeltas told Variety.

Temeltas, who has wide experience in Turkey’s film and television industry, has also recently been appointed artistic director of the country’s first-ever television awards, the Ismail Cem Turkish TV Awards, which are slated to take place April 23-24.
