- What’s On
Published twice a year, Cornucopia is the magazine for connoisseurs of Turkey – gorgeous enough for the coffee table, serious enough to be found in academic libraries. This truly remarkable publication – beautiful, uncompromising and independent – is an ever-growing compendium of all things Turkish: history, culture, art, food, travel. SUBSCRIBE TODAY
The arbiter of taste Tyler Brûlé has described Cornucopia in the Financial Times as ‘a cross between The World of Interiors and National Geographic, with a gentle Turkic twist’.
The New York Review of Magazines writes: ‘It’s a truism that the measure of a travel magazine’s success is whether it makes you yearn to visit the destinations it depicts. Cornucopia goes one better. It is a vacation in itself.’ Oryx, Qatar Airways’ flight magazine describes Cornucopia as ‘the much coveted magazine for the modern Turkish aesthete’.

As the April tulips bloom and the city starts to feel like spring, there’s no better time to settle into a dark movie theatre and get transported.
April’s highlight is the 38th Istanbul Film Festival, which this year has 186 films, including a retrospective of Stanley Kubrick’s entire filmography.
If you’re looking for more films after the film festival ends, the ReelLife Film Programme continues with a screening on April 25, followed by a panel discussion.
If you find yourself in Izmir, Mersin, Antalya or Adana, the 17th International Filmmor Women’s Film Festival on Wheels continutes its travelling programme through those cities.
