The Turkish Yunus Emre Institute in Tehran is looking to enhance cultural and cinematic exchanges with Iran.

In an interview with IRNA, director of the institute Ibrahim Furkan Ozdemir emphasized the importance of strengthening ties between Turkish and Iranian filmmakers through joint activities and co-productions.

One of its recent collaborations is holding a successful workshop on virtual reality and artificial intelligence in Tehran.

The Yunus Emre Institute also plans to host a Turkish short film festival in Iran and an Iranian short film festival in Turkey.
