13th Arpa International Film Festival's 2010 Program

The 13th annual Arpa International Film Festival will launch on September 21 with the North American premiere of the newly restored print of Amo Bek-Nazaryan’s 1926 silent epic “Namus,” the first full-length feature produced in Armenia. Co-sponsored by the Armenian American Chamber of Commerce, the screening will be an outdoor event.

The six-day festival, which wraps September 26, will host the screenings of over 40 feature films, shorts, documentaries, music videos and animated films from 30 nations. Eric Friedler’s documentary “Aghet – A Genocide” is included in the lineup. Friedler will be on hand at the festival to collect the Armin T. Wegner Humanitarian Award, which is annually presented to a filmmaker who contributes to the fight for social justice and human rights.

In addition to the films, this year marks launch of the Francophone-Fest Cinema side bar with the festival’s 2010 Career Achievement Award presentation to 2010 Palm D’Or Short Film winner Sérge Avedikian.
