She also works for an independent short film festival “KannibalFest”, based in Berlin. She started to work with the Istanbul based association Diyalog when the global pandemic broke out, focusing on the Mahalla Festival 2020, the InEnArt Platform and the organisation of the Video-Workshop Searching Traces. She published her first foto-essay “Local Insights in Times of Pandemics” published on the InEnArt platform, which gives a glimpse from the situation in the “Koşuyolu” neighbourhood of Istanbul.
Mahalla Festival 2020
To cope with the COVID-19 pandemic the Mahalla Festival 2020 will take place as a remote festival to overcome self-isolation, demobilization and paralysis.
The Mahalla Festival 2020 is implementing remote tools to keep intercultural communication and creative expression alive even in times of physical distance and to help to cope not only with the pandemic but also to create new forms of interactive communication and understanding between different communities in the world.
