The month of the national cinema "Cinema Autumn" will be held under the patronage of the President of the Republic of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan.
This year the month of the national cinema "Cinema Autumn 2011" is dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the independence of RA.
The recent and old national film production including featuring, documentary, animation and youth films will be screened at all regions, military units, educational institutions, bordering sites, all Yerevan districts, cinemas and public places.
A series of exclusive archive material will be desclosed to the public; meetings with professionals, presentations, publicists' competitions and other remarkable activities are meant to be organized within the frames of the project.
"Cinema Autumn 2011" has expanded this year spreading its activities upon all Armenian regions this time (due to the shortness of time only four regions were involved in the project the previous year). The opening ceremony of the "Cinema Autumn 2011"w ill be held in Goris, the administrative center of Syunik region, on 24 September; the closing ceremony will take place in Yerevan on 30 October. Thus, every year the program will take its start in one of the regions and finish in Yerevan. Screenings will start at several regions at the same time. The organizers of the project hope to revive the cultural live of the regions keeping the regional population actively involved in the cultural life and activities of the capital.
The main and the most important reason for the regional screenings is to restore the collapsed cinema network step by step. We hope that the implemented activities will foster the futher self-operation of the regional cinema network in close cooperation with the National Cinema Center of Armenia.
The screenings in Yerevan will start simultaneously with the regions involving not only the city center but also other administrative places. All districts, parks and other fitting locations will also be utilized to organized the screenings.
