Meetings on the Bridge (April 10-11, French Cultural Centre) is a two day event organised to serve as a platform for Turkish and European film professionals to meet. Organised last year for the first time, it aims to bring together representatives of European film institutions such as Eurimages, Arte, Unifrance, ZDF with Turkish producers and directors to discuss funding possibilities for filming projects.
