Armenian, Turkish filmmakers to hold 10th meeting in April

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Armenia-Turkey Cinema Platform (ATCP) is getting ready for its tenth meeting.

The platform, promoting joint film production between Armenian and Turkish filmmakers, will convene on April 14-16 as part of activities on the sidelines of the 33rd Istanbul International Film Festival. The ATCP this year is backed by the European Union, Al-Monitor reports.

Filmmakers from Turkey, Armenia and their diasporas can submit projects by March 28. The initiative had started with short films and documentaries, produced with amateur means and based on human stories that moved the audiences and built cultural bridges.

This year, the platform’s international jury will assess 10 projects and award one a $10,000 grant.
