16th Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival
The 16th Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival (Turkish: 16. Antalya Altın Portakal Film Festivali) was a film festival scheduled to be held in Antalya, Turkey, in 1979 which, was cancelled as a protest against state-imposed censorship.
The competition was cancelled after all the members of the jury and competitors withdrew when the Censorship Committee banned and cut scenes from Ömer Kavur's Yusuf and Kenan (Turkish: Yusuf ile Kenan), Yavuz Özkan's Railroad (Turkish: Demiryol) and Yavuz Pağda's Travelers (Turkish: Yolcular) and the organizing committee canceled the festival in solidarity. A rule change made the films eligible to compete in the following year's festival but this was also subsequently cancelled.
The awards for this and the following festival, which was also cancelled, re-christened Belated Golden Oranges (Turkish: Geç Gelen Altın Portallar), were presented at an award ceremony as part of the 48th International Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival, with the recipients chosen from the films originally selected as candidates by the original jury members selected to represent the competition.
The original 1979 Jury was to have consisted of Prof. Özdemir Nutku, Prof. Alim Şerif Onaran, Süreyya Duru, Onat Kutlar, Emre Kongar, Hale Soygazi, a representative from TRT and a representative from Antalya.
