International Crime and Punishment Film Festival is a themed festival which aims to make a cultural impact on the theme of justice, using art and science’s impactful language and to enrich the socio-cultural life, regarding people’s rights and freedom.
The festival, which started in 2011 for the first time under the guidance of Istanbul University – Faculty of Law, has created a wide scientific discussion platform with the representatives of cinema, law, psychology, sociology, political science and non-governmental organizations, by meeting the justice themed films from the world cinema with the audience.
Other than the film screenings, competitions and the discussion program, which were formed with the justice volunteers who support the festival from all around the world, with the VisionIST Industry Days, which was aimed towards the film industry, the festival is trying to support the dreams of young film producers and to contribute to the cinema sector.
The festival which preserves the title of being a thematic festival and brings together an academic platform with the cinema world, encourage the audience to think about and discuss justice, and make decisions for the future with the participation of the academicians, cinema directors and producers every year in Istanbul. Festival’s motto, which has been maintained for 10 years, is “Justice For All”.
