French cinema has a sterling presence at the 34th Istanbul Film Festival
31 French films (including coproductions), selected across all the sections, will be honored at Istanbul's leading cinema event.
The Istanbul Film Festival will take place April 4 through 19, 2015 and will present fifteen French films. Several French artists will be present: Angélique Litzenburger and Samuel Theis for Party Girl, Brice Cauvin for The Easy Way Out, Raoul Peck for Murder in Pacot, Boris Lojkine for Hope, and Jean-Paul Salomé, President of Unifrance, whose latest film, Playing Dead, will inaugurate the theater of the Institut Français in Istanbul, which has been converted to digital screening facilities thanks to support from the CNC.
In 2014, French cinema enjoyed its best year ever in Turkey since UniFrance regularly started monitoring French film results in this territory. Its 1.36 million admissions showed a 230% increase on 2013, thanks in large part to Lucy (860,000 admissions).
