The poster or the upcoming 37th Istanbul Film Festival is revealed. Created by the artist Murat Palta, the poster comprises iconic characters from the cult films of the cinema history: A Clockwork Orange, Arabesk, Donnie Darko, Ipekçe, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Seventh Seal and The Wizard of Oz.

The organiser of the festival Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (IKSV) continues to work with prominent names in different artistic branches. Murat Palta, who started his studies with his graduation thesis titled “Film Posters with Miniature Techniques” and continued his experimental work with traditional Ottoman motifs and contemporary Western cinema, designed the poster.

Murat Palta expressed his excitement in bringing such a work together with the Istanbul Film Festival and said, “It is delightful to be involved in such a relevant project, an international festival in Istanbul. The logic of illustrating world cinema in miniature style that I employ in my own work is reflected in this poster. Characters of local and international films to be shown in the festival, or films significant to the history of cinema even though they will not be shown in the festival, came together on this poster for the festival.”

The festival will be held between 6 and 17 April 2018. Accreditation applications for the festival can be submitted until the 24th March and the complete programme will be announced in March 2018.
