2010 Ystanbul Loot

Wednesday, Oct 21, 2009

Ystanbul 2010 kültür de?il ya?ma ba?kenti! Hangi gazeteci ve yazarlar ajanstan nasiplendi?

'Ystanbul 2010 Avrupa Kültür Ba?kenti' için kurulan ajansa yapylan 1595 ayry ba?vuru ve onayyn belgelerini ele geçirdi. AKB'nin onaylady?y projeler için milyonlarca lira da?ytyldy?y ortaya çykty.

“Ystanbul 2010 Avrupa Kültür Ba?kenti Ajansy”nyn (AKB) dev bir kamu kurulu?una dönü?tü?ü ileri sürülüyor. Avrupa Birli?i Konseyi’nin, 2006 yylynda,Ystanbul’u 2010 Avrupa Kültür Ba?kenti seçmesiyle olu?turulan, kesilen vergiler ve çe?itli ödeneklerle devasa bir bütçeye sahip olan ajansta, “Jüri” konumundaki yöneticiler, kendilerine ve yakynlaryna ait projeleri onaylayyp milyonlarca liranyn altyna imza atmakla suçlanyyor. Nobel Ödülü sahibi Orhan Pamuk’a, “Masumiyet Müzesi” projesi için verilen deste?in de 754 bin 500 TL oldu?u ortaya çykty.

10 BYN DOLAR ABD’YE

Yine 2010 kapsamynda, 2 camiye 4 milyon 550 bin TL’lik haly alynmasyna karar verildi. Ayryca AKB, Ystanbul 2010 çaly?malary kapsamynda, ABD’de bulunan ve Fethullah Gülen cemaatine yakynly?yyla bilinen, Chicago Türk Amerikan Toplulu?u’nun yapaca?y Türk Dünyasy Festivali’ne de “bronz sponsor” oldu ve 10 bin dolar ödedi.

Ystanbul 2010 çaly?malary üzerinde uzun süredir tarty?malar ya?anyrken, AKB Yürütme Kurulu Ba?kany Nuri Çolako?lu istifa etmi?, yerine plastik sanayiinin önde gelen isimlerinden ?ekib Avdaviç atanmy?ty. Gazete HABERTÜRK, Ystanbul 2010 Avrupa Kültür Ba?kenti Ajansy’nyn aldy?y pek çok karara ve onaylanmy? ya da onaylanmamy? projelere ula?ty. Nobel ödüllü yazar Orhan Pamuk’un son kitaby “Masumiyet Müzesi” büyük bir kampanyayla geçen yyl okurlarla bulu?mu?tu. Yazar Pamuk, Türkiye’nin ve Avrupa’nyn en çok kazanan yazarlaryndan biri olarak kitabynda öyküsünün anlatyldy?y Beyo?lu Çukurcuma Caddesi’ndeki 24 No’lu eski Brukner Apartmany’ny satyn almy? ve müzeye dönü?türmek için Mimar Yhsan Bilgin’le anla?my?ty. Masumiyet Müzesi’nde romanyn kahramany Kemal’in, büyük a?ky Füsun’un hatyrasyny canly tutmak için biriktirdi?i e?yalary ve nesneleri sergilenecek. 60 metrekare taban alany üzerine oturan, 3 katly, 3 cepheli küçük bir apartmandan olu?an müze için Pamuk’un bir vakyf kurup AKB’ye ba?vurarak proje sundu?u ortaya çykty.

AKB, 08.06.2009 tarih ve 2009- 127 nolu kararyyla, “Masumiyet Vakfy adyna, Orhan Pamuk tarafyndan Ajansymyza ba?vurusu yapylan ‘Masumiyet Müzesi’ projesinin Ystanbul 2010 AKB projesi olarak kabulüne, projeye Ajans bütçesinden 754 bin 500 TL tutarynda destek olunmasyna” karar verdi. ?imdi merak edilen, Pamuk’un 180 metrekarelik müzeye 754 bin 500 TL’lik hangi nesne ve e?yalary sy?dyraca?y!

PAMUK’TAN 2. PROJE

Orhan Pamuk’un Ajans 2010’dan beklentisinin sadece “Masumiyet Müzesi”yle ilgili olmady?y, 933 nolu ba?vuru dosyasyyla ortaya çykyyor. Yönetmen Ysmail Sancak, “Orhan Pamuk: Ystanbul Rüyasy” belgesel filmi için Ajans’tan 1 milyon 953 bin 252 TL istiyor ve bu dosya da onay için bekliyor. Bayrak, projenin Orhan Pamuk tarafyndan desteklendi?ini ve yazaryn tüm ar?ivini bu çaly?ma için açaca?yny projesine ekliyor.

‘YSTANBUL 2010’ Y?TAH KABARTIYOR...

AKB, 12.05.2009 tarihinde aldy?y 2009-84 nolu kararyyla, “03-07 Haziran 2009 tarihleri arasynda Ytalya’da gerçekle?ecek ‘Venedik Bineali’ için 2010 AKB projesinin tanytymynyn yapylmasy amacyyla bir resepsiyon verilmesine, 4 bin Euro’yu geçmemek üzere resepsiyon giderlerinin Ajans bütçesi”nden geçmesine karar vermi?ti.

SERT ELE?TYRYLER YAPILDI

Ancak Venedik Bineali’ndeki Türk Pavyonu’nda parasyzlyktan kokteyl yapylamazken, Asya Pavyonu’nda AKB’nin ödene?iyle bu kokteyl yapylmy?ty.

Daha sonra Asya Pavyonu’nun küratörünün Beral Madra oldu?u ortaya çykmasy sanat çevrelerinde sert ele?tirilere neden olmu?tu. “Jüri” konumundaki Madra, Ajans’a 954, 955 ve 956 nolu proje ba?vurulary sundu. Bu projelerin dany?many olarak da Melih Görgün, Erda? Aksel, Ahmet Öktem, Tayfun Erdo?mu? ve Nermin Soyba?yly’nyn isimlerini syralady. Madra’nyn, “Ystanbul ya?yyor ve çaly?yyor” sempozyumu organizasyonu için 438 bin 290 TL, “Ta?ynabilir Sanat / ‘Ysim ?ehir’ Karma Sergisi” açyly?y için 181 bin 100 TL ve “Ystanbul sanat fuarlarynyn ve uluslararasy katylymlarynyn desteklenmesi / Comtemporaly Sanat Fuary” için 178 bin TL’lik proje bütçesi iste?i, Ajans tarafyndan bütünüyle onaylandy. Ayryca “Ystanbul ya?yyor ve çaly?yyor” projesine bütçe açy?y nedeniyle, 23.06.2009 tarih ve 09-255-5 sayyly kararla 186 bin 69 TL ek bütçe çykartyldy.

Madra’nyn akrabalaryndan, Sivil Toplum Enstitüsü’nün deste?iyle kurulan Açyk Radyo’nun kurucularyndan Cem Madra, 937 nolu proje ba?vurusuyla “Sulukule Romanlary”ny anlatan projesi için 98 bin 369 TL, yine Madra’nyn yakynlaryndan Jak Kohen, “Açyk ?ehir 2010” projesi için 163 bin 548 TL istedi ve bu talepler komisyonda bekliyor.

JÜRY MY, YARI?MACI MI?

Uzmanlar burada en önemli sorunun Madra’nyn eserleri de?erlendiren bir jüri üyesi mi, yoksa yary?macy my oldu?una dikkat çekiyor. Bu noktada yöneltilen önemli bir ele?tiri de gelen projeleri de?erlendirmekte sorumlu olan Madra’nyn, bir yandan da kendisine proje üretmesi. Tüm büyük bütçeli projelerin ardynda da Görsel Sanatlar Yönetmeni olarak Beral Madra’nyn bulundu?u ileri sürülüyor. Ajans’yn Görsel Sanatlar Yönetmeni olan Beral Madra, ayny zamanda Radikal Gazetesi’nde yazyyor.

Orhan Pamuk, kitaby için kurdu?u müzeye para istedi

2006 Nobel Edebiyat Ödülü, ‘Ystanbul’un melankolik ruhunu ara?tyrma yolunda, kültürlerin çaty?malary ve birbirleriyle iç içe geçmesinde yeni semboller bulan Orhan Pamuk’a verilmi?ti. Pamuk, ödül töreninde yapty?y konu?mada, “babasynyn bavulu“nu anlatarak büyük alky? almy?, yakla?yk 1.9 milyon TL para ödülünün de sahibi olmu?tu. Masumiyet Müzesi projesi için Ystanbul 2010 Ajansy’ndan 754 bin 500 TL destek alan Pamuk yine yönetmen Ysmail Bayrak’la ajansa sundu?u, “Ystanbul Rüyasy” filmi onaylandy?y takdirde, 1 milyon 953 bin 252 TL daha destek alacak.

Ystanbul 2010, aydynlaryn, gazetecilerin, yazarlaryn da dikkatini çekiyor ve proje üretiyorlar. Yeni ?afak yazary ve eski Marksist Ay?e Böhürler, 17.07.2009 tarih ve 09/259-5 sayyly kararla “Ystanbul’un Syrlary” projesi için, Dany?ma Kurulu üyeli?i de yapty?y AKB’den 210 bin TL bütçe alyyor. Radikal Gazetesi’nin “keskin muhalifi” Yyldyrym Türker, Dilek Gökçin’le birlikte hazyrlady?y, 739 kayyt nolu “Neden Geldim Ystanbul’a” belgeseli projesi için Ajans’tan 896 bin 717 TL bütçe bekliyor.

TALYPO?LU DA TALYP!

Ankaraly gazeteci Tayfun Talipo?lu, 815 kayyt nolu “Ystanbul’da Kadyn Olmak” belgesel projesiyle, 1 milyon 349 bin 570 TL istiyor. Ajans bütçenin yüzde 97’sine onay veriyor ve 1 milyon 295 bin 970 TL ödenek çykyyor. Talipo?lu’nun projesi, Ajans’yn 3 ay öncesi kayytlaryna göre beklemede duruyor.

AKB’den proje alan di?er liberal isimden biri de, ünlü yazar Deniz Türkali. Türkali, 3 yyl önce kaybetti?i e?i, ünlü yönetmen Atyf Yylmaz’la ilgili projeyi Ajans’a sunuyor. Ajans, 30.06.2009 tarih ve 09/256-1 sayyly kararynda “Atyf Yylmaz Stüdyosu” projesini, Ystanbul 2010 AKB projesi olarak kabul ediyor ve projeye 490 bin TL katkyda bulunmaya karar veriyor. Ajans tarafyndan, Türkiye Yazarlar Birli?i’ne, “Ystanbul Edebiyat Mevsimi” projesi için 14.07.2009 tarih ve 09.258-14 nolu kararla, 352 bin TL katkyda bulunuluyor.

KENAN I?IK’A KIRMIZI I?IK

Bu arada bir de kaybeden var: Onun ady da Kenan I?yk. Ba?vuru dosyasyna 1 numaradan giri? yapan ünlü tiyatrocu Kenan I?yk, Ystanbul’un çe?itli tarihsel mekânlarynda “Hüsnü A?k” oyununu sergilemek üzere 1 milyon 625 bin TL’lik proje öneriyor ama bu oyunun ?ehir Tiyatrosu’nda oynandy?y ortaya çykynca, proje hemen rafa kaldyrylyyor.

Gün geçmiyor ki 2010 Ystanbul Avrupa Kültür Ba?kenti Ajansy’nyn çaly?malaryyla ilgili bir tarty?ma çykmasyn. Yktidar kavgalary kadar projelere yapylan itirazlar da yüksek sesle dile getirilmeye ba?landy. Son olay da, yönetmen Mustafa Altyoklar’yn zehir zemberek mektubu.

Yanly? anla?ylmasyn, bütün bunlary kesinlikle ?effaflyk adyna do?ru buluyorum.
Sonuçta alynan vergilerle yürütülüyor i?ler. Kimin nereye ne kadar para verdi?i ve kimin bundan pay aldy?yny bilmek herkesin hakky.

En son yönetmen Mustafa Altyoklar’yn Film Yönetmenleri Derne?i Ba?kany olarak üyelerine gönderdi?i açyklamayy okudum.
2010 Ajansy, yapylacak i?leri 12 Yönetmenlik altynda toplamy?ty biliyorsunuz. Bunlardan biri de Sinema Yönetmenli?i ve Altyoklar da burada Dany?ma Kurulu’nda görev yapyyor.

Sinema Yönetmenli?i projelerinin neler oldu?u ana hatlaryyla açyklanmy? ama bütçeleri belirtilmemi?ti. Bu vesileyle ilk kez 2010 için yapylan film projeleri bütçeleriyle birlikte açyklanmy? oluyor.

Ama Mustafa Altyoklar’yn bir takym itirazlary var. Ve bunlary yüksek sesle diye getiriyor. En fazla tepkiyi de, Hollywood’da film afi?i tasarymcysy olarak çaly?an Emrah Yücel’e. Yücel, çe?itli yönetmenlerin anlataca?y küçük Ystanbul hikayelerinden bir film yapmayy tasarlyyor. Altyoklar, ayryca oklaryny “halkla ili?kilerci” dedi?i Mehmet Çelebi’ye de yolluyor. ABD’de bir PR Ajansy olan Çelebi, Sharon Stone ve Andy Garcia’nyn Kurtlar Vadisi’nde oynamasyny, Christina Aguilera’nyn Var mysyn Yok Musun programy için Türkiye’ye gelmesini ayarlamy?ty.

YUKARIDAN GELEN EMYRLE 40 MYLYON TL

Verdi?imiz tabloda hangi projeye ne kadar bütçe ayryldy?yny inceleyebilirsiniz.
Dany?ma Kurulu bir karar verme organy de?il, projeler hakkynda görü? bildiriyor ve bu görü?ler Artistik Komite’ye sunuluyor. Son karary Yürütme Kurulu veriyor.
Altyoklar bütün bu bilgileri dernek üyelerine aktardyktan sonra sinema projeleriyle ilgili dü?üncelerini ?u ?ekilde dile getiriyor:
“Bugüne kadar Türkiye Sinemasy’na hiçbir katkysy olmamy?, hiçbir sinema filminin yapym, yönetim ya da senaryo üretimi a?amasynda yer almamy? afi?çi Emrah Yücel ve halkla ili?kiler ?irketi sahibi Mehmet Çelebi’nin henüz byrakyn senaryoyu, sinopsisleri dahi olmayan projelerine “yukarydan” gelen emirle toplam 40.000.000 TL destek verilmesini asla kabul etmeyece?imizi bildirdim. Bazy üyelerin afi?çiyle halkla ili?kilercinin Amerika’da iyi lobi yapabileceklerini (ne demekse?) belirtmeleri üzerine itirazym kurulda maalesef yeteri kadar destek bulamady.

Üyesi oldu?um bir kurulda ki tarty?malary sizlere aktardy?ym için üyelikten ihraç edilme ihtimali, ta?ydy?ym sorumlulu?un kar?ysynda tek kelimeyle “anlamsyzdyr”.
Üstelik Dany?ma Kurulu üyeli?i ne maddi, ne manevi, ne de dolayly bir ki?isel çykar pozisyonudur. Neden istifa etmedi?imi soracak olursanyz e?er, cevabym açyktyr: Desteklenmeyi hak eden projelerin haklyly?yny savunmak ve sürece, sinema tarihimiz adyna ?ahit olmak için…
Vergilerimizle olu?turulan bir fondan Amerikan sinemasyna destek verilmesine izin vermeyece?imi ve sizlerden alaca?ym güçle mücadeleye devam edebilece?imi bildirmek ister, keyfiyeti bilginize arz ederim. Mustafa Altyoklar”


Kazakh Festival 'Montage of Cinemas' Opens August 3 – 9 at DGA, Los Angeles, CA

Saturday, Jun 23, 2012

The Second "Kazakhstan Montage of Cinemas: Film & Cultural Festival" launches at the Directors Guild of America (DGA) in Los Angeles on Aug. 3 for a one-week celebration of Kazakh cinema and culture, including musicians.

The festival is a stellar opportunity for directors, producers, location scouts, and the general public to get an understanding and appreciation of this exotic locale without leaving home.

Sweeping from the Caspian Sea on its Russian border to the Altai Mountain range on the Chinese border, Kazakhstan has a rich nomadic history as well as a powerful current tapestry of cultures. Since gaining independence in 1991, the Central Asian Republic has embraced its remarkable filmmaking past that dates back to the 1930's, when Sergei Eisenstein made his classic “Ivan the Terrible” in this mystic land, and has even given rise to several "New Wave" movements.

Opening night on Aug. 3rd begins with a reception at 7 pm, and includes a program of live entertainment until 11 pm, at the DGA Theater.

Sponsored by Kazakh Geographic Society (KazGeo.kz ), helixfilmsinc.com , the Embassy of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and the Honorary Consulate of Kazakhstan in Los Angeles, the festival includes Advisory Board Members Steven-Charles Jaffe (GHOST, K19), David Marconi (Screenwriter, ENEMY OF THE STATE), and Ambassador Erlan Idrissov.

Tickets cost $10 (including free parking) can be purchased from the festival’s website. "Kazakhstan Montage of Cinemas: Film & Cultural Festival 2012" will be held Aug. 3 - 9 at the Directors Guild of America on 7920 Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles, California

Palme D'or for Best Short Film in the 65th Cannes goes to "Sessiz" (Be-Deng)

Sunday, May 27, 2012

The 65th Festival de Cannes drew to a close tonight with the closing awards ceremony hosted by Academy Award nominated actress Berenice Bejo.

The top prize was captured yet again by Michael Haneke for his portrait of an elderly couple Amour. This is the second time he has bested Jacques Audiard who was also in competition with De rouille et d'os (Rust and Bone). Haneke becomes one of the few two-time Palme d'Or winners alongside Alf Sjoberg, Francis Ford Coppola, Bille August, Emir Kusturica, Shohei Imamura, and Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne and only the second after August to win with consecutive films – his previous Palme d'Or was for his 2009 film Das weiße Band (The White Ribbon).

Matteo Garrone picked up his second Grand Prix for his film Reality. Previously, he had won in 2008 for Gomorrah.

The surprise winner for the Jury Prize was Ken Loach with The Angels' Share. He previously won the Palme d'Or in 2006 with The Wind That Shakes the Barley.

Another previous Palme d'Or winner won Best Screenplay. Cristian Mungiu who made 4 luni, 3 săptămâni ?i 2 zile (4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days) returned with După dealuri (Beyond the Hills), and it also shared the Best Actress for its stars Cosmina Stratan and Cristina Flutur.

In spite of the heavy American representation in the selection, the only American film to win a prize was Benh Zeitlin's Un Certain Regard entry Beasts of the Southern Wild which won the Camera d'Or for first film. Last night, it had won the FIPRESCI international critics' prize.
