According to the statement made by TRT, Turkish director Erdem Tepegoz's new movie In the Shadows which had its world premiere at the 42nd Moscow International Film Festival, continues its journey to the festival.
The movie, which won the Best Actor award with the main actor Numan Acar at the Fantaspoa International Fantastic Film Festival last month, was awarded the Best Cinematography at the South East European Film Festival held in Los Angeles in May.
The production, which made its Turkey premiere at the 57th Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival, returned from the festival with a total of 5 awards, including the Best Director and the Turkish Film Critics Association (SIYAD) Best Film awards.
