''We need to ensure a qualitative increase of the Armenian film industry worldwide, contributing to the improvement of its reputation on international platforms. I target this goal via my film; I aim at drawing attention to the Armenian cinematography and thus raising issues of pan-Armenian nature, including that of Karabakh. The screenings of the film ''The Last Inhabitant'' in Cannes Film Market, Shanghai and Venice Film Festivals are the tangible outcomes of all our efforts. We are always open for suggestions and cooperation in favor of the development of the Armenian cinematography and implementation of our joint objectives. On the way to our goals, we appreciate not only individual initiatives but also state support and coordination which creates additional opportunities on international platforms both for the film projects and the state itself most particularly when referring to military issues'', said Jivan Avetisyan.
On September 5 the film ''The Last Inhabitant'' will be screened at Venice production Bridge Film Festival. The screening will be attended by the crew and cast of the film as well as many distinguished guests. On September 7 a press conference will be held with the participation of the film crew.
