Film Submissions

The 1st Foça International Archaeology and Cultural Heritage Film Days (‘Foça Film Days’) will be held from 18-21 October 2018. Foça film Days will screen documentary films that focus on archaeological and cultural heritage to an audience made up of local residents and visitors, particularly youth. Films will be shown at the Reha Midilli Cultural Centre and will be accompanied by panel discussions and talks with archaeologists and documentary filmmakers from Turkey and abroad. All film showings and other events will be free and open to the public.

The goals of Foca Film Days are:


  • To introduce to the public important examples of architectural and cultural heritage from Turkey and around the world,
  • To raise awareness about the importance of heritage conservation, and
  • To encourage sustainable tourism.


In line with these goals, Foça Film Days is accepting submissions of films of 5-35 minutes in length that were completed after 2008. Entries in languages other than Turkish or English must include either a) subtitles in English or Turkish or b) a time-coded transcript in English.

Accepted films will be screened at Foça Film Days, and excerpts of accepted films may be used by the event organizers for educational and promotional purposes. By submitting your film, you agree to these conditions.
