At the end of the day, Hülya Koçyiğit was hosted by the Turkish Cinema Summer School at an interview moderated by İstanbul Şehir University Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Peyami Çelikcan.

The actress met with the young movie-makers and talked about her experiences in the sector, the movies she had taken part and the experience she had acquired during her career as an actress. After the participants posed for a photo, the program ended with the outdoor screening of the movie “Adını Anmayacağım” (I will not mention your name), where Koçyiğit co-starred with Cüneyt Arkın.

Following the interview, Koçyiğit talked to Anatolia News Agency and stressed the importance of providing correct information on Turkish cinema, Turkish people and Turkish language to foreign students. The actress drew attention to the fact that a negative image of Turkey is frequently brought to agenda by foreign media outlets. “Upon visiting our country and becoming acquainted with us, the foreigners do not find the prejudices instilled in them. Rather, they find affectionate, peaceful, nonpossessive and hospitable people. This means that such projects are quite useful and should be performed in greater numbers,” she said.
