April 18, 2014 Zis Center of Culture organised the Sose Film festival with the headline “Content is woman”. The festival included films the main topic of which was the woman.
The film festival carries the name of one of the most vivid individuals in Armenian history – Sose Mayrig. An Armenian woman who lived her life heroically as a mother, a woman, and a person dedicated to her nation.
Seeing the interest and the positive reactions of artists toward the festival, hearing the opinions and suggestions of professionals and the society, in 2015 Zis Center of Culture decided to extend the geography of the festival, and announce it as Sose International Film Festival. The organisation of international events and the sharing of experience, cultural dialogue and the opportunity to cooperate are essential for our region.
Starting 2017, Sose International Film Festival is extending and changing its format:
All the events planned in the frame of the film festival will take place throughout the whole year: the film festival will be finalised with an award ceremony.
The film festival is coming out of thematic limitations: all the films can take part in the main competition program.
