The Ayvalık International Film Festival Takes Place in September!



This year, the Ayvalık International Film Festival will be organized by the Eye Society - For All Watching Occasions from 16 to 21 September, 2022. Azize Tan is the director of the festival.


The Eye Society - For All Watching Occasions has been founded to organize cultural and artistic events in all corners of the country, and primarily in Ayvalık. The Eye Society - For All Watching Occasions is a new and fully independent institution that prioritizes youth projects and aims to transform Ayvalık into an alternative centre both for cinema and the other arts.


The Ayvalık International Film Festival has set itself a long term trajectory in Ayvalık, a town which, with its history, culture, architecture, cuisine, location and considerate habitants, presents an ideal environment for a film festival. In contrast to other film festivals in Turkey, the Ayvalık International Film Festival does not include a competition within its scope, its aim is to create a zone of debate for social issues through film screenings, panels and talks. Film students from all corners of Turkey work in the festival’s organization and meet participants from the film industry by taking part in workshops where they will increase their experience. The Ayvalık International Film Festival aims to take its place among the leading festivals of Turkey, seeking its unique answer to the question: How can a city and festival complement each other?


The logo of the Ayvalık International Film Festival finds its inspiration in the north-easterly Poyraz wind, the waves of the sea and the historical heritage of Ayvalık.


Since our festival has new social media handles, we also wish for you to follow and accompany us on this exciting journey.
