Check this out; A new online film hub - "Social Change via Film"

A new era has begun. Balık Arts invites you to enjoy its new viewing platform presenting hidden gems from around the world. You will also find a special section dedicated to the cinema of Turkey, the starting point of our journey. Experience the diversity of humanity from the comfort of your own home. Are you ready? Because this isn't just another film platform. It's Balık Arts TV: creating social change via film.

Balık Arts was established in 1999 to work primarily with young people through the arts and film, using the motto “Social Change via Film”. As a charity we organise transnational youth exchanges, training programmes and festivals, inspiring our audiences with thought-provoking films from around the world.

Although our work began by concentrating on Turkish-speaking communities from Turkish, Kurdish and Cypriot neighbourhoods in London, our activities grew over time to run projects for all ethnicities and ages across the UK.

Over the years we have hosted festivals in the UK (14th and 15th editions of London Turkish Film Festival and 1st and 2nd editions of Taste of Anatolia in Cambridge), and North Cyprus (Golden Island International Film Festival, and have collaborated with dozens of festivals worldwide (Dhaka International Film Festival, Sochi International Film Festival, Watersprite: the Cambridge International Student Film Festival, East End Film Festival, Rainbow Film Festival and many more).

We are always happy to hear feedback and create relationships with new collaborators, so please do not hesitate to contact us at for more information.

We hope you're ready. It's time for Social Change via Film. Anytime. Anywhere.See
