Biography

Garin Hovannisian has been an active participant in Armenia’s struggle for freedom, and has written about it for The Atlantic, The New York Times, and in his memoir Family of Shadows. He is the co-writer/ director of the feature film 1915 (2015), a psychological mystery set 100 years after the Armenian Genocide, and praised by the Los Angeles Times as a “a high-minded version of Birdman...a creative way to do justice to such a monumental topic.” He splits his time between Los Angeles and Yerevan, Armenia, where he has founded the arts foundation Creative Armenia. His production company Avalanche Entertainment (est. 2014) has produced I AM NOT ALONE and 1915, and a variety of forthcoming projects in film and television. Garin was an IFP 2020 Series Lab Fellow for his series RED CURTAIN, co-created with Alec Mouhibian.
