23rd Flying Broom International Women’s Film Festival

 
  • Date: May 2020
  • Work: Online film festival
  • Partner: Flying Broom Foundation
  • Website: ucansupurge.org.tr

During the pandemic days surrounding the world, we crossed the borders thanks to the “online festival".

We brought festival films to audiences from all over the world.


Flying Broom International Women's Film Festival, which cannot be realized in movie theaters due to pandemic conditions, said "If you can't leave your house, the festival will come to you!"

The theme of the year, which was planned to be "Nature", updated itself as #WeStayedAtHome due to the current conditions.

Although this period put physical distances between people with the obligation to stay at home, it created new opportunities and ways to take the festival beyond its natural limits and reach audiences from many parts of the world. Mareliber stands with you to remove the borders and bring the distances closer by cinema and art.

The experience of wandering the movie theater, right from your favorite seat!

Some of the most enjoyable aspects of a film festival are wandering between movie theaters, choosing the movies you like, and running from movie to movie with the program under your arm. And most importantly: The experience of watching together.

We had to bring the festival experience that the audience is used to and loved very much, to the digital platform. We transformed the official website of the Flying Broom Foundation into a cinema center with two halls. Moreover, we delivered the directors' talks and Q&A events to art lovers on the same platform, with the same formula.

 

Stylish, understandable and functional.

Sometimes deciding which movie to watch can be a tiring effort for the festival audience. A well-prepared film catalog and screening program determines the quality of the festival experience.

In order to keep the focus of the festival audience on the movies in a digital environment with plenty of distractions, we both prepared a traditional film catalog and turned it into contents ready to share on social media. While we the screening program and movie index in our movie theater, we transferred the daily menus to social media.

    You were one of the most beautiful of this pandemic process. Thanks to you, a lot of people outside of Ankara have been able to access the movies. In addition, it was very nice to walk around the hall and attend the sessions without having any technical problems. When life returns to "normal", would you consider making movie screenings next year and then releasing it on digital like this? Thanks to everyone who contributed, you were very successful.
