Dutch newspapers Het Parool named Craigslist Allstars an IDFA-favourite and "one of the most exciting films at the festival"
Idfa's programmer about Craigslist Allstars on the IDFA Daily paper: “It's uncomfortable to watch. People make personal films about family issues but who really dares to make a film like this, to put something really at stake and play a game with that. Is it a feminist film? It's perhaps a perfect example of a female gaze.” <3
i-D magazine says Craigslist Allstars is "one you absolutely must see this week"
😍 VICE has listed Craigslist Allstars as one of their 5 favourite IDFA-films by female directors <3

"Samira Elagoz' brilliant film Craigslist Allstars is an exploration of intimacy between strangers, and all the different forms desire and human connection can take. Funny, disturbing, moving and honest, Elagoz' work is a revelation.”
Marijn Lems, Het Huis Utrech, 2016
Interview for IDFA Daily: "Her resulting film is both fascinating and bizarre in equal measure..."

TRAILER CRAIGSLIST ALLSTARS
Winner of the André Veltkamp Award 2016 with my work Cock, Cock.. Who's There?
"The grant is intended for an outstanding student production deserving to reach audiences after graduation and outside the school context. From jury report: 'The jury proudly awards the André Veltkamp Grant 2016 to ‘Cock, cock, who’s there?’ by Samira Elagoz, graduate of the School for New Dance Development. ‘Cock, cock, who’s there?’ is a documentary lecture performance about violence, intimacy and establishing connection in a world in which the virtual and the real are inextricably intertwined. The performance is unsettling, thorough and moving. It has fundamental thematic and deserves a life after graduation. In short: ‘Cock, cock, who’s there’ is performance that resonates long after you leave the theatre. "
