Hovhannisyan wins Audience Award at Trieste 07

Vardan Hovhannisyan (DCM 2003) is among the winners of the 18th edition of the Trieste Film Festival (18-25 Januar 2007), which is nowadays the most rich and articulated Italian film festival devoted to the cinema from Central and Eastern Europe and beyond. After the remarkable success of the first two editions of 2005 and 2006, the competition devoted to documentaries represents a pivotal section of the Festival. The documentary film is becoming a more well-known form of artistic expression, not only as a reportage or a journalistic survey but also as a narration and a necessary witnessing of the world we live in.

Vardan’s film A Story of People in War and Peace ran in the International Documentary Film Competition and was awarded the Audience Award. Congratulations!
