AMERIKATSI Earns a Spot on Oscar's Best International Feature Shortlist, Making Armenian Film History

Here's some exciting news from the world of cinema! Michael Goorjian's film "AMERIKATSI" just made history by becoming the first-ever Armenian film to snag a place on the Oscar shortlist for Best International Feature Film. How awesome is that?


This big moment celebrates the movie's amazing artistry and marks a brand-new era for Armenian movies on the global stage.


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recently announced its shortlists for various categories, and "AMERIKATSI" made it to the top 15 contenders for Best International Feature Film. That's no small feat, considering how tough the competition is!


This is a huge deal for Armenian cinema because, until now, Armenia had never made it to the shortlist, let alone been nominated for an Oscar in this category. So, this is a groundbreaking moment.


Next up, the nominations voting will happen from January 11 to 16, 2024, and we'll find out the official nominations on January 23, 2024. And mark your calendars because the Oscars ceremony is set for March 10, 2024.


"AMERIKATSI" is not just a win for the film itself but also a big boost for the future of Armenian cinema. The director, Michael Goorjian, did an amazing job bringing this story to life. And let's not forget Hovik Keuchkerian, whose incredible acting made this film stand out.


This recognition at the Oscars shines a spotlight on the film's universal appeal and puts Armenian cinema right in the global spotlight. It's like opening a door to more international collaborations and getting everyone excited about Armenian movies.


You can watch the film "AMERIKATSI" on Amazon now!
