Dalston to host the London Turkish Film Festival

THE capital’s epicentre of Turkish culture and gastronomy will this month also be a major hub for cinema as the Rio in Dalston hosts the 18th annual London Turkish Film Festival (LTFF).

Established in 1993 by London-based producer and cultural programmer Vedide Kaymak, the festival has grown from a three-day event to a two-week cinematic gala with support from some key patrons, including the Rio Cinema.

To date, the LTFF has screened 250 features and 350 short and documentary films, and gives audiences the opportunity to meet many of their creators and stars.

Among the highlights of this year’s festival is the world premiere of The Butterfly Dream - a drama based on the true story of two poets who fall for the same girl during the Second World War.

The festival will also include masterclasses and discussion panels featuring a range of veterans and new faces from one of the world’s most acclaimed and innovative national film industries.

The festival runs from 21 February to 3 March at venues across London. For programme and booking details, click here. Alternatively call: 020 7503 3584, or contact the venues directly.
