In June 2011, 18 young European filmmakers travveled by boat across the archipelago of Turku (Finland), discovering the unique local culture of the different islands home to many Swedish-speking Finns. Guided by award-winning documentarist Peter Kerekes, the crews produced 6 short documentary films. The CINE BOAT was part of the POLYGLOT: on the way to Turku audiovisual project about European multilingualism. NISI MASA organised the project with the support of the Turku 2011 European Cultural Capital and the European Cultural Foundation.

What if three crews of young filmmakers would leave from three different corners of Europe by train, all travel through the continent via different routes making short documentary films and finally arrive at the same time in Istanbul, finish their films and share their experiences? Mega project like ISTANBUL EXPRESS put all NISI MASA forces together. The concrete outcome are the 15 short documentaries dealing with multilingualism.
