Since 2005, Mithat Alam Film Center has chosen the 10 best short films of the year under the title of Hisar Short Film Selection. The center scans hundreds of short films made in Turkey, collects the applications and sends 10 short films chosen by a main jury, including the prominent names in their respective fields, to the national and international festivals. Hisar Short Film Selection is an important opportunity for short filmmakers to promote their films.
The pre-jury of Hisar Short Film Selection’20 consists of Elif Ergezen (documentary filmmaker), Umut Aral (director), Zeynep Ünal (producer). The main jury that chose the short films of the year consists of Feride Çiçekoğlu (screen writer and academician), Melis Behlil (film critic and academician), Nihal Yalçın (actress) and Ozan Açıktan (director)
