About Festival

The International Red Crescent Amity Short Film Festival, launched in 2018 for the first time and set out with the “this is not a part of the act…” motto, brings together hundreds of friendship-themed short films from more than 100 countries all over the world.

Organized in memory of well-regarded Anatolian personalities who have spread Anatolian friendship leaven to the world, such as Fethi Gemuhluoğlu, Aşık Veysel, Yunus Emre, and Hacı Bektaş-ı Veli, the festival aims to be a source of inspiration for the filmmakers and produce films that remind the audience the importance of the concept of friendship.

Hosting dozens of filmmakers from Turkey and abroad, the festival also targets to raise awareness about friendship among moviegoers through various conferences, interviews, workshops, competitions, special film screenings, and master classes.

Approaching its goal step by step in its first four years, the International Red Crescent Amity Short Film Festival continues to its fifth year with excitement of the first day.
