Films of the 19th Annual Boston Turkish Film Festival, which were originally scheduled for March 19 - April 5, 2020 but cancelled in response to circumstances caused by COVID-19, are now presented on a virtual platform.


We are delighted to continue the tradition of presenting high caliber films to you as we celebrate 19th anniversary of the festival. This year’s film program continues the tradition of highlighting emerging and established filmmakers of the Turkish cinema. Most of the films in the program are award-winners in international film festivals, and will have their North America or U.S.  premieres at the Boston Turkish Film Festival.

In 2019 Boston Turkish Film Festival was awarded with a special commendation by the prestigious Boston Society of Film Critics for "bringing work by emerging and established filmmakers of the Turkish cinema to Boston audiences".

Organizing a festival undoubtedly is a collaborative effort of many individuals and organizations. With this opportunity, we would like to thank our supporters and board members as well as individual, corporate and organizational sponsors whose commitment and collaboration made this festival possible.

Hope to see you in our festival in many decades to come.

Enjoy the Festival!
