Yerevan Childrens Films Festival

You went to Armenia recently as a jury member of the Yerevan Children’s Films Festival, how did it go from your point of view?

It is an international festival, held for the seventh time. Films for children compete in this festival. Wonderful films were displayed. It had been a great experience for me. I watched very good films and met with people from the world who are knowledgeable about this subject. I am going to say “I wish we had one”, but it seems a little distant as we have no directors who do or want to film movies for children or producers who care about this matter yet. Unfortunately, we do not attach adequate care to children’s literature either and we come from behind in every field. I hope one day we will have such festivals in our country. And appreciate children’s areas more.
