Minister Zhanna Andreasyan highlighted the importance of this partnership, emphasizing that recent amendments to the RA Law "On Cinematography" have laid the groundwork to make the film sector more appealing for investments.

Today's memorandum is the outcome of those efforts," stated Minister Andreasyan.


Sisak Gabrielyan expressed gratitude to all partners, emphasizing the potential effectiveness of this collaboration not only for Armenian filmmakers but also for international film producers. Arman Nshanyan, director of "People of AR" LLC, emphasized that this significant step in film production will attract producers, investors, and industry specialists, facilitating the filming of international projects and collaborations with globally renowned professionals.
