WineGame Poster
During its first quarter year of release having already earned 22 film festival Awards and 33 nominations from 385+ scheduled screenings in 38+ countries on 6 continents plus 6 United States and counting, Vahan Bedelian's “WineGame” absurdly retells the Sisyphus punishment myth with the stone rolling up the hill being a worker's wagon fueled by the Nectar of the Gods. Hollywood's 2020 Holy Grail IFF & Monthly Online IFF BEST ACTOR Phillip E. Walker-MFA is this comic, one-man-silent mini short film's lone performer.

Director's Biography

Panjim IFF 2020 BEST DIRECTOR Award Winner, Vahan Bedelian as born May 6, 1991 of Romanian heritage. Now a graduate film student out of LA's Loyola Marymount University, he first got into filmmaking by shooting and editing documentaries on martial artists. From this background, Vahan brings a strong understanding of rhythm and action in visual storytelling. He combines these elements with his love of setting, production design, and generally strange imagery for a style that he hopes can feel unique and fresh to audiences.

Director's Statement

I feel like we can all relate to trying to carry too many things at the same time, both literally and metaphorically. I wanted to make a movie about that.

    Thanking you for the encouragement, we expect our new WFCN participation to be a important part of "WineGame's" upcoming large film festival tour during this COVID-19 year. This coming Sunday's planned submission might even present "WineGame's" WORLD PREMIERE!
