Each year since 2008, the Istanbul Film Festival restores Turkish classics. This year with the support of Zurich Sigorta, esteemed director Şerif Gören’s 1987 masterpiece On Kadın / Ten Women will be restored by Atlas Post Production to be screened during the festival.

Palm d’Or-winning master director Şerif Gören, who often has tackled women's issues in his films, adapted Hüseyin Kuzu's script to present portraits of women dealing with problems in a male-dominated world. Şerif Gören will receive the Festival’s Lifetime Achievement Award this year.

On Kadın starring Türkan Şoray, who received Istanbul Film Festival’s Cinema Honorary Award in 1996, will be screened from its digital copy restored with the support of Zurich Sigorta.
