WineGame Trailer Poster
Designated as “Funny in a sophisticated way” by its recently concluded Badami.TV syndicated distribution on 42 USA network local TV stations in 20 United States, the “Chaplinesque” silent film “WineGame” was called “Meaningful” by ShortCloseUp.com from Romania at the beginning of the Short’s current 52 Countries on 6 Continents tour. Having just won nine 24 Hours Film Challenge Awards including BEST SHORT FILM OF THE YEAR, “WineGame’s” first 2021 Award was for OVERALL CRAFTSMANSHIP plus ACTING & DIRECTING from The Netherlands’ Golden Smile IFF and since World Premiering August 1, 2020 in a 300+ screenings, 6 month KINNO [Moscow] run (during the Pandemic outbreak), to date “WineGame” has been adorned with 54 film festival Awards (including China’s 2020 Helan Hong Golden Tree Red Wine International Film Festival BEST MICRO FILM NEWCOMER €2500 Euro cash prize) from 73+ Nominations out of 122+ Selections producing 528+ scheduled Screenings including in nearly ½ of the 50 United States and counting. India’s 2020 Panjim IFF BEST DIRECTOR Vahan Bedelian’s Oasis BEST FILM-MICRO, Rancho Cucamonga-California two time GRAND PRIZE winning, as well as Worldwide four time BEST STUDENT FILM, absurdly retells the Sisyphus / Naranath punishment myth with the stone rolling up the hill being a worker’s wagon fueled by the Nectar of the Gods.

Director's Biography

Currently in Post-Production for his next Short - “Fitz”, for “WineGame” this artist is the Indus River Cinefest and 24 Hours Film Challenge BEST EDITOR, Global Monthly Film Competition BEST TRAILER plus 24 Hours BEST POSTER & BEST STORY WRITER Awards Winner. Mr. Bedelian was born in America on May 6, 1991 of Armenian heritage. Now a top of his class Loyola Marymont University School of Film and Television 2nd year graduate student out of Los Angeles, California - USA, 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 a love of setting, production design, and generally strange imagery for a style that he hopes can feel unique and fresh to audiences. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5390674/

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.
