The MFA Film Program and Turkish American Cultural Society of New England are proud to present a selection of documentaries and short films as a part of the 19th Annual Boston Turkish Festival's Documentary & Short Film Competition. The first of its kind in North America, this competition has received remarkable international attention. More than 40 films will be screened in this year's program at the MFA and at Boston University (Nov 11-13). In addition to “Best Documentary" and "Best Short Film" selected by the jury, the audience will also vote for their favorites. In this rare opportunity, film enthusiasts in Boston will be able to explore works of the young filmmakers first hand.
