Stating that they aim to bring 1 million children together with cinema every year, Ersoy said, “You know, the second Beyoğlu Culture Road Festival is being held this year. This was a good occasion to start the project again. We wanted to make this start in Atlas 1948 Cinema. Our event will continue throughout the year mainly in Anatolia.” said.

Mehmet Nuri Ersoy pointed out that the Beyoğlu and Başkent Cultural Road Festivals continued with full-fledged programs, noting that there was a satisfactory level of participation in the programs.

Underlining that the activities in the Culture Road festivals are increasing in number every day, Ersoy said:

“(Relating to the festival) Reactions and feedback are both very positive. In this respect, we want to continue by expanding these activities throughout the country. We have made a start and we want to spread this beginning to our different cities. Our private cultural institutions and institutions are already continuing. Every year there is more participation and as the participation increases, the share of the Ministry decreases. This is what we really want. Let this event be embraced by culture and art institutions, and this route should not be limited to the festival only, but continue throughout the year. For now, we support it with festivals twice a year. This year, I traveled the route for a long time in Beyoğlu and Başkent. A cultural economy started to form on this route, which caught my attention in Beyoğlu, and they started to move here. It has been adopted by the public and also by our artists who produce culture and art. The direction we aim for continues to evolve.”

“Participants are happy, non-participants are happy too”

Because everyone needs this positive energy in some way. With the arrival of summer, everyone has the right to live and feel the city. When we look at it in this context, we see that people's interest is very positive and positive.” used the expressions.
