“We received a wide variety of films, both stylistically and thematically, from burgeoning and established filmmakers alike,” said Arpa director of programming Armen Toumajan.
“Though it was our most difficult selection process ever, we managed to cull the best of the best. This year’s line-up is truly our most international in scope and offers something for everyone. Festival patrons will not be disappointed.”
