  • First time I was in Yerevan for the 'One Shot Film Festival' 7 years ago. The festival is in an amazing city and run by a team of very creative and engaged people. This year I couldn't attend but the editor of the film was present and he was very happy with the organisation and hospitality. We were awarded a Jury Special Mention and we are celebrating. Well curated, small and friendly festival!

    Unfortunately we had no opportunity to be present at a festival personally, but organizers regularly updated photos and news its social networks. Also they were always ready to contact - is always valuable. It was very pleasant that our small film "The Last Cruise" has been awarded a special mention! With pleasure I advise all - this friendly festival and we will participate in him the next time
