The Golden Apricot Film Festival enjoys great popularity not only in the region but also in the entire world, attaché of the Culture Department of the Polish Embassy in Armenia Meline Yeghoyan told the aforementioned to journalists Monday.
Within the framework of the non-competition program of the film festival, a Polish Film Day will be jointly held with the Polish Embassy.
According to Yeghoyan, the Polish Film Day will be dedicated to the great master Andrzej Wajda, who passed away last year. “In 2016 he was going to visit Yerevan and receive a Parajanov’s Thaler award for his great contribution to the world cinema.
