Spaces of Culture’s first Mobility Program in collaboration with the 58th Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival took place during 2-10 October. As the physical distance makes it even more essential to create strong networks nowadays, speakers and participants of the program came together in physical and online sessions to further strengthen their ties with discussions and knowledge exchange sessions on cinema and filmmaking.
In the program, a total of 15 participants from Gaziantep, Diyarbakır, Izmir, and other neighboring cities are selected to participate in lectures and meet artists and industry professionals. During the program week, participants attended film screenings along with the online classes.
Besides joint events by the Golden Orange Film School and Antalya Film Forum, Tuba Ay gave a lecture on the use of color in cinema, Şahan Yatarkalkmaz introduced film analysis, and German director Martina Priessner talked about documentary filmmaking.
