David Lynch to visit Tbilisi on November 20
American film director David Lynch will visit Tbilisi on November 20 for a Q&A session in the Khidi night club.
Lynch will open a cinema institute and film festival in Georgia with his local partners. He will collaborate with the newly established David Lynch Foundation Caucasus (DLFC) - a branch of the director's international organisation - for the two initiatives.
The moves include plans for establishing a cinematography institute and an "A-class" international festival in Georgia.
The projected launch of the international cinematography institute named after Lynch is aimed at turning the quality of country's filmmaking education into a regionally leading position, a release by the committee said.
Beside the projects for the institute and festival, the cooperation is also projected to include initiatives for the David Lynch Foundation's work on road safety and post-trauma rehabilitation internationally, Agenda.ge reported.
