Kismet was presented at the IDFA FORUM 2012 central pitch.
Read an excerpt form realscreen's "IDFA Forum report":
"One of the most interesting pitches of the Forum’s first day delved into the world of Turkish soap operas, which are proving phenomenally successful with broadcasters worldwide. Kismet promises to look not just at the success of the films, but at how they are encouraging Muslim women to challenge the constraints of traditional gender roles. The pitch featured a glossy and impressive trailer, and the filmmakers explained that ‘Kismet’ means fate."
