The grantee, the Armenian Foundation for Promotion of Cinema and TV for Children and Youth “Rolan Bykov” Foundation, is the organizer of the ‘Rolan 12th International Film Festival for Children and Youth’ that will take place in Yerevan on November 5-9, 2016.
The Festival is supported by a number of local and international donors and sponsors. The grantee will partner with the Turkey-based “Iron Bird” Association for Art and Social Projects Research and the “Agenda is Child” Association to bring together young cinematographers, film directors and scriptwriters from Turkey and Armenia.
This constituency will be able to participate in Festival’s workshops, round-table discussions and master-classes in Yerevan, as well as in Shirak and Lori regions of Armenia. Interaction among participants during these activities, film screenings and follow-up discussions will necessarily engage them into a dialogue on human and professional levels, which may grow into sustained partnerships and friendships.
The Armenian-language translation of Birgul Oguz’s novel “HAH” from Turkish into Eastern Armenian was published by Antares publishing house, and it is currently available in book stores in Armenia. On December 16-18, 2017, HCA-Armenia hosted Birgul Oguz and the engaged literary translators in Yerevan for a series of promotional events.
