16th London Turkish Film Festival @ The Rio

Throughout 2010 Turkish Cinema has been enjoying unprecedented success at film festivals worldwide.

During two weeks in November the 16th London Turkish Film Festival is bringing many of these films to London and, as the original home of the LTFF, the Rio is delighted to be playing host to seven days of exciting features, documentaries, shorts and discussions.

The highlights include a rare chance to see EGG and MILK, the first two parts of Semih Kaplanoglu’s trilogy, alongside his Berlin Golden Bear winner HONEY; KOSMOS the latest film from internationally acclaimed director Reha Erdem; unique, fascinating and revealing doumentaries such as LOST SONGS OF ANATOLIA and MUEZZIN; a chance to discover the ‘Turkish Coen Brothers,’ Yagmur and Durul Taylan with their dark comedy VAVIEN; and films from Turkish directors working abroad which this year range from Ferzan Ozpetek’s delightful Italian family saga LOOSE CANNONS to Ozgur Uyanik’s RESURRECTING THE STREET WALKER, made in Soho and the LTFF’s first psycho-horror movie!
