International Adana Film Festival is one of the most prestigious film festivals in Turkey, which has been running for 24 years. Our guests do not only get the chance to participate in various events, workshops during the festival and meet outstanding filmmakers, film writers, actors/actresses; but also see the natural and historical places of the beautiful city of Adana, meet the most warm-blooded people ever and put on a few kilograms at the end of the festival.

International Short Film Competition: 4 categories, 15.000 TL. award for each category

ANNOUNCEMENT! Thank you for the high interest to our festival. We need to change the regular deadline from 27th of July back to 1st of July. Because there has been a great amount of submittance so we want to earn more time for our jury to make a fair elimination. Good luck!
