The first edition of the Antalya Golden Orange International Film Festival was launched fifty years ago in 1964, at a time when the international success of the director Metin Erksan ignited national support for the creation of a Turkish film festival. Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival has primarily been a national film festival, despite occasional claims to internationality. The history of the festival is also tainted by political aspirations. Antalya’s rivalry with the Golden Boll Film Festival in neighboring Adana provides an interesting case study for understanding the ways in which tensions between political parties and municipalities may affect film festival organisation.
