    'Boats out of Watermelon Rinds' of Turkish director Ahmet Ulucay won the 'Best National Feature Award' during the 16th International Ankara Film Festival. The film unfurls the story of Recep and Mehmet, two young friends of modest means and admirable ambitions. After discovering that the small local theater regularly discards worn-out film, the boys have begun collecting and, in their own strange fashion, screening these cinematic cast-offs each night in an abandoned shed. Eleven films namely ''Fall of the Angel'' by Semih Kaplanoglu; ''Where Are You Firuze?'' by Ezel Akay; ''Boats out of Watermelon Rinds'' by Ahmet Ulucay; ''I am Afraid Mum'' by Reha Erdem; ''Heads or ails'' by Ugur Yucel; ''Welcome Life'' by Umit Elci; ''Helin's Dream'' by Nuray Sahin; ''Balance and Maneuver'' by Teoman; ''Protect Yourself'' by Ayse Polat; ''Dreaming Plays'' by Yavuz Ozkan; and ''Night 11:45'' by Ercan Durmus joined this year's National Feature Competition.
