Sidewalk FF 2016 – Jury Award – Best Family Film

There are some 25 billion hits on the 2 million+ cat videos on the net. Discounting the repeat offenders and addicts (divide by 4), it holds that 6.25 billion people, that’s just about everybody on the planet, can’t be wrong! Cats are cool.

And no more so than in Instanbul, where 100s of 1000s have for 1000s of years wandered in and out of their minions (that’s us) lives.

The camera-work, from slinking about on a feline’s back to soaring above the city they share with humans, is as about as free and fluid as the cats themselves and is accompanied by a great score and well-chosen Turko-pop.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Sari, Duman, Bengü, Aslan Parçasi, Gamsiz, Psikopat, and Deniz.
