 43rd ISTANBUL FILM FESTIVAL AWARDS

17-28 April 2024

INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION

Golden Tulip Best Film (in memory of Şakir Eczacıbaşı)

Forever-Forever / Nazavzhdy-Nazavzhdy / Anna Buryachkova (Ukraine, The Netherlands)

 

Special Jury Prize

Sweet Dreams / Ena Sendijarević (The Netherlands, France, Indonesia, Sweden)

 

 

YOUNG MASTER AWARD given by the Nespresso Youth Jury

Hoard / Luna Carmoon (United Kingdom)

“This debut film, in which the themes of abuse, trauma and grief are treated from a common but unique and personal point of view, disturbed us at times and moved us at times with its consistent and striking vision. The stylistic preferences adopted to describe the shocking world established in the film had an energy and dynamism that reflected the director's youth. For all these reasons and more, we, the members of the Nespresso Young Jury, decided to give the Young Master Award to this film”.

 

NATIONAL SHORT FILM COMPETITION

Best Short Film

Eksi Bir / Minus One / Ömer Ferhat Özmen

“For its skilful management of the viewpoint and handling of each character within the world it has constructed, and for conveying the delusions in the panorama of Turkey to the audience in a strong and simple language”.

 

Special Mention

Zarafet ve Şiddet Arasında / Between Delicate and Violent / Şirin Bahar Demirel


“For its strong and original visual language based on a personal story, its layered structure that interacts between the reality of the past and the imagination of the present, and its striking story”.

 

 

SEYFİ TEOMAN BEST DEBUT FILM PRIZE

Best Debut Film

Büyük Kuşatma / The Grand Siege / Sinan Kesova

“In addition to its bold visual choices, The Grand Siege by Sinan Kesova, whose second film we will eagerly await with great curiosity, presents us with an original story that has not been told much, with a dose of clever irony and a sense of humour that surrounds the film from beginning to end”.

 

Special Mention

Başlangıçlar / Inpaintings / Ozan Yoleri

“For heralding a director making his feature debut with his mature, decisive cinematic language, aesthetic integrity, and the unusual, original story he tells”.


NATIONAL DOCUMENTARY COMPETITION
Best Documentary
Dargeçit / Hold Still / Berke Baş

“Unanimously, for once again reminding us of the inevitable connection of documentary cinema with the search for justice since its emergence, with its simple and consistent aesthetics, and its gentle and subtle language”.

Special Mention
Domates, Biber, Depresyon / Tomato, Pepper, Depression / Aybüke Avcı

“For a creative portrayal of a disease that affects us all, with universal language and brilliant humour”.

 

FIPRESCI PRIZES

International Competition

Forever-Forever / Nazavzhdy-Nazavzhdy / Anna Buryachkova (Ukraine, The Netherlands)


“A portrait of adolescent dynamics in the 1990s within a climate of social and political unrest. It speaks in an innovative way about young sexuality, violence, abuse, and the definition of female roles in an Eastern European patriarchal society facing wild capitalism. The director succeeded creating a swiftly paced narrative and obtaining intense and deep performances from a young cast”.

 

National Competition

Tereddüt Çizgisi / Hesitation Wound / Selman Nacar


“A dynamic and complex courtroom drama focused on an exceptional female character with whom we are drawn into a bleak legal system falling pieces every passing minute. A tight script, a confident directing and editing, a brilliant performance are the top characteristics of this exceptional film”.

 

National Short Film Competition

Beyaz Dağın Çocukları / Children of the White Mountain / Yalçın Çiftçi

“The film builds a genuine story about childhood and community while it shines out with its warmth and sincerity. The tenderness and simplicity combined with the audio-visual narrative stays with the audience for some time”.
