AMERICAN FILM AWARD FOR HUMANIST BROADCASTING FOUNDATION


Dorothee Forma awarded for The Story of my Name- an Armenian History
- at the Arpa International Film Festival in Hollywood.

>>From the festival jury rapport:
The AFFMA film award is given to the filmmaker who best represents the ideals of independent thought, artistic vision, cultural diversity and social understanding.
This year, the AFFMA award is presented to Dorothee Forma, film producer for the Humanist Broadcasting Foundation in The Netherlands. Ms. Forma's documentary "A Wall of Silence" screened at the 2nd Arpa International Film Festival in 1999. That film paralleled the personal and professional lives of Turkish historian Taner Akcam and Armenian historian Vahakn Dadrian and their call for international recognition of the Armenian Genocide.
This year, Arpa honors her for "The story of My Name", a film documenting Alex Peltekian's discovery of his cultural ancestry and his journey to his grandfather's homeland.


"The Story of my Name" was produced with support of the Dutch Cultural Broadcasting Fund
