Malatya Reveals the ‘International Competition’ Films

Turkey’s up and coming new festival ‘Malatya International Film Festival’ is preparing to run its second edition from 18th November to 24th November this year.  The festival - which was welcomed with a great interest by the movie lovers last year- announced its ‘International Feature Film’ Competition nominations. The festival is organized by World Mass Media Research Foundation with the support of the Malatya Apricot Research, Development and Promotion Foundation and Malatya Governorship and the Malatya Governor Ulvi Saran.   The ‘International Films’ to Compete;
FASE 7 / PHASE 7, Nicolás Goldbart, Argentina 2010, 96’, 2010 Best Screenplay, Sitges FFHow long can you ignore apocalypse? Argentina has been hit by a fatal epidemic. Alarmed, people are stocking up on food and batteries. Inside a quarantined apartment building Coco has to protect his pregnant wife Pipi from the collapsing world outside – and his new neighbours. Panic-fuelled, they slowly turn into insidious enemies. VISUL LUI ADALBERT / ADALBERT'S DREAM, Gabriel Achim, Romania, 2011, 96’“Adalbert’s Dream” is a black comedy based on a real story that happened in a Romanian factory in the 80’s communist era. A work accident is re-enacted, but the re-enactment turns into a new accident: the worker playing the victim gets his hand cut off, as well. The film is set near the end of Ceausescu’s dictatorship against the backdrop of Romania’s finest moment in soccer: the victory of Steaua Bucharest over Barcelona during the 1986 European Cup Final. LES FEMMES DU 6ÉME ÉTAGE / THE WOMEN ON THE 6th FLOOR, Philippe LeGuay, France 2010, 104’, 2011 Audience Award, Aspen FFParis, in the early 1960s.

The affluent man lives a steady yet boring life. At least until, due to fortuitous circumstances, Maria, the charming new maid at the service of Jean-Louis' family, makes him discover the servants' quarter on the sixth floor of the luxury building he owns and lives in. There live a crowd of lively Spanish maids who will help Jean-Louis to open to a new civilization and a new approach of life. In their company - and more precisely in the company of beautiful Maria - Jean-Louis will gradually become another man, a better man. A JAMAÂ / THE MOSQUE, Daoud Aoulad-Syad, Morocco, France 2010, 85’To make Aoulad-Syad’s previous film “Waiting for Pasolini”, sets were built on plots rented from those living in the village. A mosque was erected on the plot belonging to Moha, a local appearing in the film. On completing the shooting, the film team left the village. The neighbours demolished all of the sets, except for the mosque, which has become a real place of worship for those who live there. A complete disaster for Moha who used to grow vegetables to feed his family on the land.  MOI, MICHEL G., MILLIARDAIRE, MAÎTRE DU MONDE / MICHEL G., KING OF THE WORLD, Stéphane Kazandjian, France, Belgium 2011, 87’Mocumentary about fictional business tycoon Michel Ganiant. He has the power, he has the money, he has the woman. And now he has a film crew on his back... Discover the true face of neo-liberalism and enter the crazy world of Michel Ganiant. Too bad it's your world too... EL DEDO / THE FINGER , Sergio Teubal , Argentina 2011, 98’The Argentine interior in 1983. After years of bloody dictatorship, the country is preparing to return to democracy. But the population is not accustomed to voting. It has no idea of how you choose who will rule. In the provincial town of Cerro Colorado, the man running for mayor is murdered. As an act of vengeance, the man's finger will be kept in a jar. Standing on a shop counter, it gains a life of its own. It will serve as an excuse to solve a murder. A black comedy based on Alberto Assardourian's novel “El dedo de Baldomero”. Dİ 36 GE GU SHİ / TAIPEI EXCHANGES, Ya-chuan Hsiao, Taiwan 2010, 82’ Doris's Café is a homey space where the aroma of coffee and home-baked desserts fills the air.

Ignoring Doris's protest, Josie starts exchanging goods with customers in the shop which becomes the biggest attraction of the shop. One day a man walks in. He brings stories from different cities to exchange something special. These exotic tales fill Doris's mind with beautiful images. What Doris is willing to give up for exchanges these tales? TERRI,  Azazel Jacobs, USA 2011, 105’An outsider in every possible way, from his weight to his refusal to wear anything but pajamas, Terri spends his days mocked at school and largely left to his own devices at home. When Mr. Fitzgerald, the school’s well-intentioned Vice Principal, turns his attentions to Terri’s antisocial eccentricities, and a popular girl suddenly becomes a pariah, Terri finds himself on an unexpected path to friendship. The International Feature Film Competition jurors Mithat Alam, Roger Christian, Ludek Drizhal and Shahla Nahid will evaluate in the ‘Best Film, ‘Best Director’, ‘Best Actress’, ‘Best Actor’, ‘ Best Screenplay’ and ‘Best Music’ categories.  The other award categories will be rewarded with;Best Film €15,000 and ‘Crystal Apricot Award’Best Director €5,000 and ‘Crystal Apricot Award’Best Screenplay €3,000 and ‘Crystal Apricot Award’Best Actress €3,000 and ‘Crystal Apricot Award’Best Actor €3,000 and ‘Crystal Apricot Award’Best Music €3,000 and ‘Crystal Apricot Award’ -END-For further information please contact;Ms. Müge Çetinkaya; T: +90 (0) 212 256 49 91, +90 (0) 532 407 68 56
