Believing strongly in the power of art in changing attitudes and that the cinema is the most effective means to reach broader sections of the society, Anadolu Kültür in Istanbul and Golden Apricot International Film Festival in Yerevan have established Armenia Turkey Cinema Platform in April 2009. Since then, the Platform is ongoing as a co-production and communication initiative aiming to develop close cooperation and links between both societies by supporting and promoting films and filmmakers from Armenia, Turkey, and the Diaspora through organizing workshops, supporting production of films and their screenings in all over the world.
So far, 23 films have been supported by the platform.
