The Turkish Canadian Society is pleased to announce the Vancouver Turkish Film Festival (VTFF) – a new and exciting event to be held at Vancouver’s prestigious Vancity Theatre this upcoming January 23 – 25, 2015.

A new addition to the Turkish Canadian Society’s 2014 – 2015 event line-up, our festival organizers Eylem Sönmez – a seasoned film production coordinator in Vancouver, and Hakan Burcuoğlu – an award winning filmmaker and commercial director, are both working tirelessly in the efforts to bring the best of Turkish cinema to the Vancouver film loving public.

The inaugural Vancouver Turkish Film Festival (VTFF) has partnered up with the Vancouver International Film Festival’s (VIFF) flagship Vancity Theatre – soon to become VTFF’s home, commencing with a cocktail gala on the evening of January 23rd followed by the opening film, and coming to a close on January 25th.

VTFF has deemed it their mission to include in its selection a wide array of films – from contemporary, award winning Turkish feature films with international acclaim, to independently produced Turkish short films and documentaries, along with mainstream favorites. VTFF also has in its plans to invite and host select film directors whose films are featured in the Festival line-up.

VTFF’s film line-up will be announced in late October, 2015. Ticket sales will be through Vancity Theatre’s website – and will go on sale early January 2015.

VTFF is always in need of your support! The Festival is still searching for sponsors as well as prospective volunteers who can assist at the venue for the duration of the event. If you’d like to be a part of this event, please e-mail us at
