The exclusive gala screenings entitled “İKSV Galas” organised year round by the Istanbul Film Festival outside of the festival dates were launched in 2016 aiming at presenting the most anticipated films of the year to the Turkish audience as their Istanbul premieres.

In the near future, a film screening each month is planned as part of the İKSV Galas programme except for April and October when the Istanbul Film Festival and Filmekimi take place, respectively.
