The posters of Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival 2020
Unlike in previous years, 57th Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival comes up with two different posters this year. The organizers of the festival dedicated one of the posters to honour the healthcare workers around the world. The poster draws a picture of a woman healthcare worker lifting a trophy of the festival.
We believe any of the trophies would be enough to express our gratitude to the healthcare workers. However, we congratulate the festival organizers as they did well by highlighting the importance of healthcare workers in our lives.
The second poster of the festival is dedicated to honour Fatma Girik. Being one of the most popular faces Turkish Film History, she’ put her signature under numerous successful movies.
Golden Orange Films are online on MUBI
Another unique feature of this year’s festival is that some of the selections will be displayed online. In collaboration with MUBI, the festival organizers curated a selection of films that were previously Golden Orange winners. The films can be watched on www.mubi.com/antalya.
