About Foça Film Days

Foça Film Days is a 4-day event taking place on October 2020 that will feature documentary films on archaeological and cultural heritage from around the world. Films will be shown at the Reha Midilli Cultural Centre in Foça, İzmir and will be accompanied by workshops and talks with invited archaeologists and filmmakers from Turkey and abroad. In addition to the daily film screenings, the cultural centre will host exhibitions of photography and artwork by local students as well as stands featuring local agricultural products and other items relating to archaeology and cultural heritage. Archaeologists and local volunteers will be on hand to lead visitors on walking tours of the local excavations and the historical town centre. All film screenings, exhibitions and walking tours are free and open to the public.
