The event, being held at the Spazio Alfieri Cultural Center with the support of the Culture and Tourism Ministry's Cinema General Directorate on Dec. 9-10, offers movie buffs in Florence the chance to see Semih Kaplanoğlu’s “Süt” (“Milk”), Tayfun Pirselimoğlu’s “Yol Kenarı” (“Roadside”), Pelin Esmer’s “İşe Yarar Bir Şey” (“Something Useful”) and Osman Sınav’s “Uzun Hikaye” (“A Long Story”).
