GAIFF President was Awarded in Cannes Golden Apricot Yerevan International Film Festival President Atom Egoyan was awarded the 34th Ecumenical Jury Prize for the humanistic values they discovered in Adoration, a film that explores cultural intolerance and misinformation.
"I am so overwhelmed by this prize because it places this film in another context," Egoyan said of his award. Egoyan won the same prize 11 years ago for his masterwork, The Sweet Hereafter. “Adoration is an intimate film. It’s very much rooted in this culture and I’m so proud to represent the country at this level," Egoyan said.
