FRESCO Festival: A festival of kindness

erit.am youth news portal writes
Nowadays, there are many festivals. Some of them are different in terms of theme, type and, of course, symbol. The organizers and guests of FRESCO International Festival of Modern Art and Spiritual Films, which is perhaps the festival that differs from festivals of our days the most, gave a press conference today.

The festival was launched on August 25 and featured film screenings, concerts and meetings with cinematographers. Exhibitions and master classes were held in Sanahin, Haghpat and Kobayr (Lori Province of the Republic of Armenia). All the films shown throughout the festival were devoted to ecological disasters, migration, family matters and other problems.

Photographer Dmitry Brickman, who is of Jewish descent, considers FRESCO a festival of kindness and, according to the photographer, that kindness is being spread across the globe.

Canadian director Pascal Gélinas’s documentary film “Bridge between Two Worlds” was recognized as the winning film in the Hero of Our Days category. “I would like to thank the whole team of the festival for hosting me. They invited an old man who didn’t know a lot about this country. In Armenia I managed to find the source, the pure water of which made me feel fresh. During this festival, I saw solidarity, the ability to cooperate and unity. I wish FRESCO and Armenia longevity,” the director concluded.

During the press conference, the festival’s organizers emphasized once again that the main goal of the festival is to raise social, moral and spiritual issues. They are certain that such festivals will help restore the arts and all that is spiritual.

The press conference was followed by famous Japanese photographer Haiato Matsumoto’s master class and the screening of the film “The Contraposition of Japan”.
