Considering the measures taken in Turkey to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) that is diagnosed as a pandemic by the World Health Organisation, the 39th Istanbul Film Festival, organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) and scheduled to take place on 10-21 April, is postponed to a later date.

New dates will be announced in the coming days.

The presentations of the projects and films from Turkey and its neighbouring countries participating in the Meetings on the Bridge will be held online on April 14-17.
