), receiving the TRT Prize, valued at €5,000 (see the news).

The story follows Babek and Sahil, two people who have been best friends since childhood, and who front a wedding band in rural Azerbaijan and dream of appearing on the famous TV show Baku Star. Soon enough, things are not what they seem – dreams are upended, loyalties are tested, and the band’s world unravels in tragicomic ways. Written by Adigozel, the film is being produced by Maria Ibrahimova (Cinex Productions) and Emil Najafov (Ultra Productions).

Faruk Guven, head of TRT Cinema, stated: “TRT Cinema co-produces and supports films not only from Turkey, but also those from other regions of the world. In the last year, films supported by TRT premiered at festivals of the likes of Cannes, Berlin, Venice, Sundance, Locarno and Tokyo, won awards and are currently continuing their festival runs all over the place. With the 12 Punto TRT International Coproduction Award, TRT co-produces international films as well. By collaborating with film festivals in Turkey and in different parts of the world, TRT supports the journey of international movies, too.”
