The Konyaaltı International Short Film Festival, bringing a fresh perspective to the city's cultural scene, will be held on February 3 and 5, 2023 to welcome everyone to meet in culture, art and entertainment.

Everyone has the right to participate in cultural life. This is the mission of the festival.

Barrier-Free Festival will make it possible for everyone to watch films barrier-free in partnership with Brighton-based Carousel, which organises the Oska Bright Film Festival.

Wheelchair accessibility, audio descriptions, sign-language translation, and embedded subtitles make it possible for people with disabilities to enjoy short films together with their loved ones and new friends they make during the festival.

The center of festival interest will be on global issues. We will bring together the films whose film selection focuses on gender, race, ethnicity, age and diversity with the art lovers who attend the festival live.

The festival will be a celebration of diversity, inclusion, and togetherness.

At first:
All Films must have the English Subtitle.
All films in the Turkish Language must have Turkish and English subtitles.

We accept:

Independent short films by professionals and upcoming filmmakers.

Submission can be of any genre: documentary, animation, art-house, children and teen, music videos and beyond.

    Thank you so very much Konyaalti for giving my film "Boundary of Time" an opportunity in your superlative film festival. I'm very honoured to have been involved. Highly recommended for all filmmakers. Very professional, beautiful, respectful and a benevolent mission statement for everyone. I hope you are all safe from harm from the tragic earthquake in your region. Our hearts and thoughts are with you all.
