Watch Free Turkish cinema online / English subtitles – Turkey

27 Flares 27 Flares ×

Our overview of Free Turkish films online with English subtitles. I have selected the best Turkish films available for free on Youtube and the latest ones on Netflix. This means all legal streaming and downloading. Turkey, as a great film and tv country, has a lot to offer – from Turkish comedies online to drama’s with English subtitles online. 

Turkish cinema is a huge part of Turkish national culture. In recent years Turkey has been producing excellent films that had great success within its own borders, but have also been picked up internationally. Especially in Europe and the Arab world due to the high amount of Turkish expats and immigrants (and second and third generation Turks abroad) who (stream) watch Turkish films online in large quantities. For them the Turkish film channel is an excellent paid website. They do not include Netflix, but Netflix also has a pretty large supply of Turkish films.

Great recent Turkish films are feature films like Innocence (1997), Vizontele (2001), Uzak (2002), Gegen Die Wand (2004 – watch in our German section), Three Monkeys (2008), Once Upon a time in Anatolia (2011) just to name a few. Although Turkey has never been nominated for an Oscar, the list of great Turkish films is endless.

For those who cannot read Turkish subtitles  or speak Turkish and would like to get introduced to Turkish cinema for free, I have made a selection of terrific free Turkish series and films online on Youtube.

Free Turkish films on Youtube with English subtitles

All these films are available on Youtube and the list will be updated regularly. We have placed German-Turkish films (Gegen die Wand, Auf der Anderen Seite) in our German film section. All our selected full films are with English subtitles. Either hardcoded or with the use of CC button.

Uzak online

One of my favorite Turkish films online. ‘Uzak’ or ‘Distant’ is an amazing drama film about a photographer who goes through an existential crisis when his wife leaves him. The film has been internationally successful, with amongst others awards from Cannes. It has been divided into several parts on Youtube.

40 online (2009)

What should you do when all of the sudden you find a bag full of money. 40 tries to answer this question, and shows that the solution is not as easy as you may think. This Turkish drama set in Istanbul is available via Hulu for free.

Issiz Adam – Lonely online 

Let start of with some Turkish romance. Issiz Adam is 2004 Turkish romantic feature film about how to have a love live in a time of modernity. Very popular on Youtube, and it has been uploaded on there by Sariyaka B 2 years, but he makes no mention of copyright. I have therefore removed the link here.

Yol online

A beautiful Turkish drama film with English subtitles. YOL was nominated for a Golden Globe in 1982 and is about the stories of five prisoners who get one week of leave. A rather harsh portrait of Turkish society. The full film is available on Youtube.

Usta – The Master online

Here you can watch the Maser online with English subtitles. No not the American one.

The video has been removed. I have found no other way to stream it.

Ay Lav Yu online

Turkey also produces a lot of comedy films. Not necessarily our favorite genre, but to give you an Example of a typical Turkish comedy – watch Ay Lav Yu by Hukumet Kadin.

This video is no longer available via Youtube, but there are plenty of other streaming possibilities.

My Father and My son online

Another good full English subtitled drama film on Youtube by director and writer Cagan Irmak. It is a great Family drama, and one of the highest-grossing films in Turkey.

No longer available via Youtube.
