He is very friendly and makes sure you do not miss anything. I could mention other people, as Fidan Aky├╝z also member of the organization of the event, but I can say that all the people I met during my stay all have an important place for me.

Apart from Mr Akin ├╝lk├╝ Sevin├ž with whom I had a good affinity, among the participants I had a lot of affinity with Anthony Merchak who won the prize for best drama for "My Destiny" a short that I realy like so much, and ├ça─čatay ├çelikba┼č Fimmaker and jury member. I am going to watch his documentary "Akt├Âr" who won a lots of awards.

It was really amazing and great, I made a little speech to thank the festival team who was really great and wonderful. When they call me for the award I was a little stressed but the Festival Director helps you to exceed. It was great.

What do you like in this stay ?

Everything !!! It was great, they took good care of us, the festival had organized a tour in which we visited Izmit and its historical places. Izmit is really a beautiful city, between sea and mountains.
