Now that the German-Turkish production ZUHAL has already borne fruit and lead actress Nihal Yalçın was named best leading actress at the Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival (Antalya Altın Portakal Film Festivali) just last week, the next collaboration is setting out on its journey:

The feature film project CRYSTAL OF HAPPINESS by Emre Yeksan is also being made together witht Istos Film and Anna Maria Aslanoglu as Turkish partner:in. Initial support has now been received from the German-Turkish Co-Development Fund, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, MOIN Filmförderung and the Filmfestival Istanbul, which is supporting the project in development with 8,000 euros

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the German-Turkish Co-Development Fund on its tenth anniversary and look forward to many more exciting projects that can only come about through such co-development funding.
