So bizim filimiz var is: We have an elephant? Also, how would I say: we do not have the elephant? Bizim filimizi yok?

When we say "we don't have the something" referring to "something" specific, we say "Bir şey bizde yok." veya "Bir şey bizde değil." So you would say "Fil bizde değil." veya "Fil bizde yok.". These sentences literally mean "The elephant is not at (with) us."

That would be used if you were talking about a specific elephant. "We do not have the elephant"

Why is "We haven't an elephant" wrong?

Rodney you plonker: I mistook "filimiz" for "film" & wrote, We do not have a film. English "Film" is spelt the same in Turkish "Film."
