The 5th Los Angeles Turkish Film Festival was founded in 2011 by nine Turkish students studying cinema in Los Angeles to celebrate Turkish cinema via short film and feature film screenings and to give young Turkish filmmakers opportunities to connect with each other and showcase their work in Los Angeles. Five years after its launch at the Egyptian Theatre in 2012 as the first and only Turkish film festival in Los Angeles, the festival will take place in collaboration with the USC School of Cinematic Arts this year.
