Since 2005, Mithat Alam Film Center has chosen the 10 best short films of the year under the title of Hisar Short Film Selection. The center scans hundreds of short films made in Turkey, collects the applications and sends 10 short films chosen by a main jury, including the prominent names in their respective fields, to the national and international festivals. Hisar Short Film Selection is an important opportunity for short filmmakers to promote their films.
The pre-jury of Hisar Short Film Selection’18 consists of Sevin Okyay (screen writer), Nazlı Eda Noyan (director and academician) and Elif Ergezen (documentary filmmaker). The main jury that chose the short films of the year consists of Ahmet Mümtaz Taylan (actor), Anna Maria Aslanoğlu (producer), İlksen Başarır (director) and Zeynep Tül Akbal Süalp (screen writer).
Hisar Short Film Selection’18 has been published thanks to the support of TIM’s.
