After two weeks of intensive programs, the Turkish Cinema Summer School came to a close with a visit to a prestigious film set.

Being the largest film set in Turkey and Europe and the second largest film set in the world after Hollywood, the İzmit SEKA Film Set hosted the young filmmakers for the Turkish Cinema Summer School.

The set attracted great interest from the young filmmakers, as it is a unique site where various historical movies, documentaries and television series ranging from the 16th century to the 20th century, are shot. The set houses recreations of Ottoman streets from the 1700s, the 1850s, famous locations and landmarks such as İstiklal Street and Galata Tower, and many other lifelike structures like alleyways, wooden houses and buildings.

During the visit, the young filmmakers received detailed information about the films, television series and documentaries that were shot on the site. Participants had the opportunity to visit and experience this important location in Turkish cinema first hand. However, with this visit, the Turkish Cinema Summer School programme came to a close, as the students started to return to their home countries after the end of the session.
