POMcore presentation to commemorate the Genocide (KAREKIN NJDEH)

9:30pm - KAREKIN NJDEH (Armenia)

Following 1915, the small but independent state of Armenia was left to fend for itself and facing the risk of absolute extinction, but for the heroics of one man, who emerged as one of the greatest military leaders in Armenian history. The Soviet authorities attempted to erase his legacy, but modern day Armenia would not exist as we know it if not for the bravery of Karekin Njdeh.

About POM

The inception…

The Pomegranate Film Festival, established in 2006 stems from the Toronto Chapter of the Hamazkayin Armenian Educational and Cultural Society. A group of young Armenian professionals, bound by a passion for film and culture. Now in it’s seventh year, the Pomegranate Film Festival is a unique community event celebrating Armenian inspired film.

What’s in a name?

Like its fruity namesake, the pomegranate, this film festival is fresh, dynamic, and prolific! Rich with culture, it depicts topics relevant Armenian culture through the medium of films submitted from around the world. In doing so, it creates a platform for burgeoning Armenian talent and the community to intermingle.

The coordinates…

As always, this year’s PFF will be held on November 7-10, 2013, so come out and join our festivities.
