The Adami Media Prize for Cultural Diversity in East Europe will hold a master class of film editing on December 5-7 in Tbilisi.
Documentary projects from Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia about cultural diversity and peaceful coexistence participate in the initiative. The master class is organized within the framework of the partnership of Tbilisi International Cinema Festival with Georgian First Channel.
According to Kote Jandieri, Head of TV Films of First Channel, the project is important with respect to connections with European cultural processes. “Engagement of our television in such projects is important both for cultural and political purposes. This means direct contacts with the cultural elite, cultural processes and diplomatic representations of Eastern European and former Soviet countries,” Jandieri said.
The master class will be conducted by French film editor Patricia Rommel.
The Adami Media Prize was created in 2015 to encourage filmmakers, journalists and audio-visual media professionals in the EU Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine) to promote topics of migration, tolerance and cultural diversity.
