“Nothing comes as a surprise to all awardees. All of them are the awards you get with your hard work. I am 72 years old. I've been a movie fan since the 5th grade of primary school. My village was 30 kilometers from the city center. My friends and I used to walk this road and watch the movie in the summer cinema and return to the village around 11 am. My fascination with cinema continued after I migrated to the city. There are many cinemas that we remember in the past. We wouldn't be wrong if we say Gaziantep is a cinema paradise. Thank you to those who contributed to the festival. I always used to say 'There are Golden Orange, Golden Boll Festivals, why is there no Golden Star Festival in Gaziantep', but this dream has come true today. I would like to thank those who made these dreams come true.”

The name of such a festival is very sacred. Because those who write poetry write with their own feelings. Those who write the lines write with their feelings. We read these. Can we capture these feelings? The directors in the films said, 'This is how I interpreted this poem, this is how I shot it. You are in between," he says. We are the ones in between. The only place we overcome this is love. Love for our country people, our country children. I have been dealing with art for 50 years. I started art in prison. I say 'well done'. Because I learned the smell of human there. If we can get on the same swing in the same park as the child in prison, the child in the prison, the child in the house, and join hands and shake them, we can achieve peace in this world. My love is yours," he said.

We felt the sound of the divine name here, we loved and were loved in this geography. We did not just fall in love with the stone and soil of our country. We heard the voice of Yunus one after the other, we heard the cry of Mevlana, we witnessed the march of the Yesevi saints, we knew the Turkish passion of Hünkar Hacı Bektaş-ı Veli, Akif, Mehmet from Karaman. We burned with the folk songs of Karaca boy, we were excited by Tamburi Cemil Bey's songs, and we were proud of Oğuzhan's world tent. We kept Alparslan's homeland, we planted Osman Gazi's plane tree in the world garden. With the ideals of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, we are walking towards the future with our President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Thank you for your participation in this very meaningful night.”

Our jury members examined them meticulously. It is difficult to produce a work in themed festivals, but all the works that came before us were works that deserved awards. As a rising value, Gaziantep continues to leave its mark with its exports and industry in today's Turkey. When we look at the past periods, the city is intertwined with cinema. Here is the Nakıp Ali value. He left a great impression on this city. Starting from his cinema in Suburcu, this value has shown its effect even in the center of art in Beyoğlu, Istanbul. The city is the perfect setting for the String Film Festival. We plan to make it traditional from now on.
