Golden Orange Film and Art Festival
The 48th annual Golden Orange Film and Art Festival in October 2011 is a wonderful opportunity to experience the fusion of two unique cultures in a beautiful holiday setting, and even possibly spot the odd film star or two! Originally started as a series of concerts and plays at the historical Aspendos Theatre in the mid-1950s, the festival has now become one of Europe’s premier film events and showcases cinema and movies from around the world. Although not as famous as Cannes, it is still regarded as an important opportunity for both new and established filmmakers to premiere their work to an appreciative audience. The event is growing in popularity every year, and is now firmly on the calendar of ‘must-attend’ events for both independent and major film producers.
However, Antalya isn’t just a Mecca for film buffs. This beautiful part of Turkey is also a popular holiday destination for sun seekers and those who want to experience the true flavour of this exotic country. Flights to Antalya are plentiful and, as Turkey still uses its own currency with a good exchange rate against the UK Pound, this diverse destination is also great value at any time of the year.
Five star hotels sit alongside authentic Turkish accommodation, and there are plenty of fun activities for all ages to enjoy. Turkey is also rich in history and culture, and its cuisine is a fusion of European and Asian flavours that are unique and delicious. Film lovers can experience all this and one of the world’s most important international film festivals in one package that creates a holiday experience to remember.
