The 24th Arpa International Film Festival begins on November 21


This year marks the 24th anniversary of the Arpa International Film Festival (Arpa IFF), the flagship event of the Arpa Foundation for Film, Music and Art (AFFMA). As one of Hollywood’s longest-running film festivals, we’re excited to announce the complete program of Arpa IFF which takes place online via our partner, Eventive, from November 21 to December 5, 2021. This year’s festival highlight a diverse lineup of 70 films from 21 countries that explore themes such as Armenian history, immigration, family dynamics, environmentalism, music, art and LGBTQ issues.

Due to concerns over COVID-19, the festival will once again be held online. This year all movies are free. Rather, the public is invited to donate online at the party.

All films and filmmakers’ Q&A can be viewed via the Catalog page, where you can browse all the available movies. Just click on a movie to view more details and order tickets.

Once you’ve ordered a ticket, you can now unlock it and start looking to see if the date is available. Click the “Watch Now” button.

If you have pre-ordered a ticket, you will receive a confirmation email and a separate reminder email letting you know when the movie is available. You can watch movies using your computer, smartphone, tablet, or on TV using a compatible device.

If you have a Roku streaming stick, Roku Smart TV, or Apple TV, you can download the Eventive TV app. Once you start watching a movie, you have 24 hours to finish it. During this time, you can watch the movie as many times as you want.

Tickets must be ordered individually. You can watch as many movies as you want, but please limit tickets to those you intend to watch.

To date, AFFMA has awarded grants to more than 150 people to support their creative endeavors. The Arpa International Film Festival takes great pride in striving to recognize the diversity of international talent and present it to a grateful audience. We place great importance on the unique artistic vision of filmmakers, cultural diversity and social understanding.
