Don Askarian with Golden Camera, Art Film festival, 2003. PHOTO by Jan SebMk
The director of the ArtFilm Festival in Trencianske Teplice, Peter Hledik, handed over the Golden Pin of Honour to the Armenian-German director, photographer, author and producer Don Askarian on the occasion of the opening ceremony for the photo exhibition of his works on 21st of June 2003. The day before Don Askarian had already been awarded the "Golden Camera" of the ArtFilm Festival for his life-long contribution to film art.
Peter Hledik said in his opening speech that it would be easy to take a camera into one's hand and to shoot a film but just few filmmakers would be capable of practicing the real art of cinematography. He compared him to filmmakers like Federico Fellini.
In his photographs one could adore the beauty of nature and the human body.
