About me
My strong passion for films encouraged me to co-create an International Short Film Festival in Istanbul when I was 19. I have a creative spirit and a keen eye to detail along with a real appreciation for films and what they stand for. I believe films have the ability to pass beyond entertainment and influence people acutely in every aspect of the world. It exhilarates me to be involved in the industry and to be able to contribute to its power what I mostly value.
