International Zeugma Film Festival

This year, Kırkayak Kültür organizes the International Zeugma Film Festival under the themes of “citizenship, neighbour and coexistence”
The festival will bring together the most powerful movies from Turkey and the world’s cinema with the aim of promoting cinema, art and cultural dialogue in Gaziantep.

Kırkayak Kültür is organising the 6th film festival this year. The movie selection of the year consists on the award-winning movies of the previous year from Turkey, Middle East and Europe.

Kırkayak Kültür works on social cohesion and coexistence under “the migration studies”. For this reason, the festival is organized with the themes of “citizenship, neighbor and coexistence”.

Kırkayak Kültür believes that culture and art pave the way for coexistence and social harmony and create a social space for different segments of society to share a common experience. Kırkayak Kültür, with that belief, works to promote and expand this social space.


Kırkayak Kültür aims to include this year our new neighbours coming from Syria to the festival, since they are themselves new citizens of Gaziantep.
