MODE Istanbul is an Istanbul-based film and digital arts initiative producing films, developing projects and organizing media workshops, master classes, screenings, exhibitions and gatherings in selected cities in collaboration with distinguished partners on local and international levels. With a focus on cultural dialogue and exchange of ideas across borders and generations, MODE Istanbul supports talents of various ages and backgrounds, helping them produce, promote and showcase of their media creations. The founding members produced the internationally acclaimed digital film festival RESFEST in Turkey (2004-2008) and all StrangerFestival related events (2008-2009). Under its Youth MODE unit, the initative is now a partner to the Youth and Media Program of the European Cultural Foundation and its Doc Next Network (docnextnetwork.org), a unique movement of independent cultural and media organizations, capturing the views of young European media-makers.
