After a two-year break due to Covid, Best of Foça Film Days returned in March 2022, bringing favorite films from October’s festival to the villages surrounding Foça. This year the screenings, conducted in partnership with the İFTYD, were held for three weeks in a row and included post-film talks with directors, thanks to support from the Foça Municipality and the U.S. Mission in Ankara. With an additional partnership between Foça Film Days and the Women’s Assembly of the Foça Citizens Advisory Board, film screenings on March 6 and 13 at the Yenibağarası Wedding Hall were included in the local program of activities for International Women’s Day. Following screenings of Hande Yelke’s “Fire and Water” and Mehtap Şamiloğlu’s “Sede”, both directors participated in Q&As with the audience. In addition to questions for the directors, audience members shared their own experiences, which they saw reflected in the characters portrayed in both documentaries. The next week, producer Nurdan Tekeoğlu answered questions from the audience following the screening of 7 Cybeles, directed by her husband, Orhan Tekeoğlu. Sevilay Köseoğlu, one of the seven “cybeles” portrayed in the film, also took part in the conversation with audience members. The final week of village screenings for 2022 took place at the newly opened Köy Evi (“Village House”) in Ilıpinar. Ülkü Sönmez’s “A Section of Troy” was screened together with Furkan Alperen Demir’s “It’s Just Sea”. When the films were over, audience members had the opportunity to speak with director Ülkü Sönmez, who not only talked about “Troy”, but encouraged members of the audience interested in making their own films. A special shout-out to all our supporters, the directors, and the audience members who came out for the screenings.
