I think it's great that turkey has such a thriving film and music industry. I've seen a few movies produced there (translated) and was really impressed. It's nice to see that story telling is so important over special effect.

Too bad you're not in Boston to check out these films. I was a little disappointed to see the exclusion of the new blockbuster "Valley of the Wolves:Iraq". I'm sure Turkish Bostonians would gladly pay to see this controversial movie. It's supposed to be the most costly Turkish film ever produced, and I'll bet the special effects aren't half bad.

What a coincidence!It is really great. I am going to Boston for Spring Break:) I will stay there only 4 days, but you say $60 festival pass which is valid whole month right? Do you think we can get one day pass ticket?

Yes Elif- each single event is $9 admission, $8 for students and seniors.
