Lake Van” International Film Festival is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide For the 4th consecutive year, the “Lake Van” International Film Festival is held in Turkey, which carries this year the title “face the cultural heritage” and is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. Because of the tension in the region this time the festival strayed of the schedule, starting on September instead of December. The date was not chosen at random. The first days of September are dedicated to Surb Khach Church in the island Akhtamar. This year films from the US, Iran, Turkey and Armenia are taking part in the festival. Armenia is the festival’s guest country. The program includes 11 feature and documentary films, among them the full-length film “1915” by Karin Hovhannisyan and Alex Muhibyan. The documentary film program is represented by Armen Gasparyan’s “Stolen Childhood”. The closing ceremony of the International Film Festival “Lake Van” will be held on December 12.
