Barikat Film was founded in 2014 by Barış Atay. The main objective of the company is to produce original films that try to create awareness about historical and current global and national concerns. Another of their founding principles is to actively counter the politically driven agenda of monopolization and bias of the Ministry of Culture and its influence in the funding of the national film industry, making it increasingly difficult to produce truly free and independent creative output.
