A project of Altyazı Cinema Association, Altyazı Fasikül: Free Cinema is an online and offline platform that focuses on freedom of expression in cinema. Altyazı Fasikül’s main purpose is to increase the visibility of the works of filmmakers who face risks of government repression and censorship. It aims to strengthen the role and position of independent cinema as a critical force in the cultural politics of Turkey.
In line with its purpose to provide a space for underrepresented/censored filmmakers, Altyazı Fasikül also organizes screenings of films by directors/collectives under risk. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Altyazı Fasikül held online screenings of short films produced exclusively for the Looking Outside programme by independent filmmakers of Turkey.
Since July 2019, five issues of Altyazı Fasikül have been published in print, distributed as a free supplement of Altyazı Cinema Magazine and one issue in PDF format. You can access all issues here online (In Turkish). In May 2020, Altyazı Cinema Magazine started to be published as an e-mag due to the effects of COVID-19 pandemic and since then, Altyazı Fasikül continues as an online media outlet.
