Boston will host the 16th Turkish Arts & Culture Festival Documentary and Short Film Competition.

Set to take place during October 29th and December 15th, the deadline for applications to the competition is Wednesday 17th August.

The event is the first ever Turkish documentary and short film competition to ever be held in North America and the award-winning films are due to be screened at the Turkish Boston Film Festival in 2012.

The judges of the competition will include Harvard Film Archive Director: Haden Guest, and film critic of the renowned Boston Phoenix newspaper: Peter Keough. Those who make it through to the final will have screenings at the Museum of Fine Arts and Boston University between December 1st and December 8th.

This is a great opportunity for Turkish film makers to reach an international audience and well known film critics and gain good exposure for their work.
