During these days as we spend time at home, Akbank Sanat has taken the excitement of shooting short films indoors. With the online "Akbank Stay-At-Home Short Film Competition" to be held from May 4 to June 4, the platform promises filmmakers a brand-new experience.
To participate in the contest, filmmakers must follow the @akbanksanat Instagram page and share at least two, and at most five, minutes of short films they have shot since April 1, on their own Instagram accounts with the hashtag #akbankevdekısafilm, mentioning @akbanksanat.
