Dear Colleagues,

As you know, the 17th Golden Apricot Yerevan International Film Festival was supposed to take place on July 12-19 this year. However, due to the COVID-19 epidemic, as a result of discussions with the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports of the Republic of Armenia, a decision was made to hold the festival in TWO STAGES. We postponed the main events to November 1-8, and from July 12-19 we conducted online programs and projects of the GAIFF Pro innovative platform for the development of the festival's film industry. In order to preserve the festive atmosphere of the festival in July, the stars of HRANT MATEVOSYAN and AGHASI AYVAZYAN were opened in the star park of Aznavour Square, which was founded by the Golden Apricot International Film Festival.

The Golden Apricot team, however, was not satisfied with all this. Many other events took place during the July Apricot Week, about which we present the PUBLIC REPORT. Before you get acquainted with the PUBLIC REPORT of the first stage of the 17th Golden Apricot International Film Festival, our team is preparing for the main events of November.
