Fresco Festival


“FRESCO”
Annual Festival of Modern Art and Spiritual and Moral Films

 

FRESCO: a New Formula of a Film Festival

Fresco is an international initiative that represents a thoroughly new format, distinct from the notions typical to the society. A festival that aims at the presentation of international spiritual works and cultural pieces combined with the organization of free and healthy social discussions concerning the issues raised by them.

In June, 2015, on the initiative of "Formica Art" Production and "Rainbow" NGO, the "Fresco" Second International Festival of Modern Art and Spiritual and Moral Films will take place. The festival, held in 2014 and being the first by its idea, had a pretty big success. This fact was fixed by both religious-cultural and social figures, by the representatives of Mass Media and by the foreign guests. The main goal of the festival was to spread and strengthen high values of humanism, combining them with cultural diversity and healthy discussions.

The goals of the festival are:

- To promote the establishment of love, solidarity, and human values in the society with the help of spiritual and cultural dialogue,

- To spread international and religious tolerance,

- To create and promote the development of spiritual and moral films and to rise their social awareness as a social-cultural factor,

- To promote the communication among cultural representatives of different countries and the creation of mutually beneficial field for their collaboration.

"Fresco" International Film Festival of Modern Art and Spiritual-Moral Films

Festival
Festival presentation: 

FRESCO: a New Formula of a Film Festival
Fresco is an international initiative that represents a thoroughly new format, distinct from the notions typical to the society. A festival that aims at the presentation of international spiritual works and cultural pieces combined with the organization of free and healthy social discussions concerning the issues raised by them.

Many festivals demonstrate films on global problems in the frameworks of their program. As a rule, after such films the audience needs to discuss and adopt what they have seen, however, the film remains the only source for an answer to the questions arisen. “FRESCO” film reviews come to fill in this gap.

FRESCO: an Informal Approach
"FRESCO" offers an informal approach to the participants of the film festival along all the stages of the festival starting from the film review up to the places the events are held, from the seat up to the prize.

The wonderful films, photo exhibitions, and shows brought to Armenia will go out from cinemas and literally “enter the streets”.

Round-the-clock open air demonstrations and film reviews “with no ticket” will literally become part of the Armenians’ everyday life 10 days on.

FRESCO Film-Program: Let’s Speak the Language of Humanism
The festival will contain both competitive and non-competitive programs. Fiction and documentary, full-length and short-length films and video materials of different formats, in which wars, violence, national, religious and any other types of discrimination, ecological disasters of human origin are denounced, and where peace, tolerance, humanism and global values are advocated.

About the Global problems in a Comprehensible/Simple Language
Not only the creators of the film strip will take part in the discussions following, but also church clerks, psychologists and specialists directly concerning the issues arisen in the film and people responsible for the field. Any conceptual and technical detail concerning the film review is to contribute to the active and unconstrained participation in the discussions. The specialists will be part of the film watchers, professional orations will be replaced by unconstrained communication and active discussions. The films and direct communication with their creators will enable to “notice” the claimed issues in our country, observe them in the context of other countries’ experience, and the discussion with the people specialized and responsible for the field will become one of the most effective ways of developing versions for the solution to those issues.

FRESCO is Open to Anyone
The festival also gives a special importance to the employment of special social groups and especially individuals with limited abilities. Due to the cooperation with the institutes specialized in the field individuals with a disablement will not only participate in all the measures of the festival, but also be actively involved in all the organizational works of "FRESCO".

The goals of the festival are:

- To promote the establishment of love, solidarity, and human values in the society with the help of spiritual and cultural dialogue,

- To spread international and religious tolerance,

- To create and promote the development of spiritual and moral films and to rise their social awareness as a social-cultural factor,

- To promote the communication among cultural representatives of different countries and the creation of mutually beneficial field for their collaboration.

Cinema figures of world-wide fame and other guests corresponding to the subjects of the films shown, that is - church clerks, the intellectuals, musicians, psychologists, etc., will be invited to Armenia from different countries to participate in the festival.

"Fresco" 2015 coming soon

We are happy to mention that the 2015 festival is broader by its volume and content as we aim to carry out an open air expansive photo exhibition along "Swan Lake" with application of innovative technologies, till now undemonstrated in Armenia, which, undoubtedly, will give new colors and freshness to the festival and contribute to involving more participants.

The festival attaches a particular importance to the work with special social groups and especially individuals with limited ability.

This year the main ideology of the festival is peace, and based on this human value, the whole program of the festival will be dedicated to the memory of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.

"Fresco" is an annual event which is a wonderful opportunity to reassess spiritual and cultural heritage, to carry on a cultural dialogue with people of other countries and to raise self-recognition and national consciousness in its context. The idea of the realization of the festival may become one of the visiting cards of Armenia to the world.
