ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
For the last 18 years Arpa International Film Festival continues to promote independent filmmakers, cultivating cultural understanding and global empathy in the heart of Hollywood. Through the generous support of our donors and sponsors, our yearly film festival event inspires people of all backgrounds and creates opportunities for creative expression. Our dedicated production team is committed to make a difference in fueling the global arena of independent cinema every year.

Last year, Arpa began its festival with the opening night film TEVANIK directed by Jivan Avetisyan. Festival highlights included Audience Award Winners TOASTMASTER (feature), HANNAH: Buddhism's Untold Journey (documentary), and RETURN OF THE TYKE (short).

Our Lifetime Achievement Award went to legendary Mike Connors and our Breakthrough Filmmaker Award was conferred to Angela Sarafyan.
