The films to compete in the the Golden Goose International Film Competition are also among films to be shown in the event, which will also host three International Youth Organisations scheduled in Kars as well as ''Stories of Kars'' Short Film Script Competition.

Legendary Turkish film director and actor Y?lmaz Güney's "Yol" (The Way) will also be screened in the event. A 30-minute footage, which was never used in the film, will be screened at this year's festival for the first time, 25 years after its production.
