"Fresco" International Film Festival of Modern Art and Spiritual-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.

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.

(In)Justice for All Film Festival

In line with the vision of The Next Movement . . .

The U.S. justice system is inhumane and immoral, and can only be changed through the efforts of everyday people passionately working to educate and inform their communities. Core to our success is the conviction that America is committing an incredible injustice on entire populations of its own citizens, and that brought to light, average Americans will become allies in the fight for justice and human rights.

. . . the (In)Justice for All Film Festival (IFAFF) will bring to audiences films that explore our current criminal justice system – police, courts, and corrections – and the for-profit industries that feed at this trough of human misery. We will share the stories of the millions that are relegated to second-class citizenship under an unforgiving system.

We will show better ways that exist in other countries and even best practices right here in America. IFAFF will screen feature length documentaries, as well as topical shorts, with themes covering the following subjects:
 

  • The War on Drugs and its effect on individuals, families, and society

  • The science of addiction

  • The politicization of crime and punishment

  • Global alternatives to imprisonment

  • Incarceration’s impacts on men, women, and children (inside and out)

  • Restorative Justice – Restoring Community Health

  • Good Cop/Bad Cop – Discretionary Police Power

  • History of Incarceration

  • Mental Health in America

  • Immigration

  • The Gang Alternative

  • Prison Reform Movements

  • Politically Motivated Imprisonment

  • Prison Profiteers – The corporations that profit from prison growth

The power of film to educate and influence, to inspire and engage, and to ultimately exponentially grow the numbers of active allies in the fight to end the embarrassing injustice that mass incarceration represents, is the catalyst for the (In)Justice for All Film Festival.
