On 12 March 2009, among with Charles Aznavour, André Santini and Hélène Ségara he attended the opening ceremony of the Yerevan Park in the center of Paris.

Leadership of the Académie des Arts et Techniques du CinémaEdit

In 2003, he was elected President of Académie des Arts et Techniques du Cinéma, a position from which he resigned in 2020 when the collective resignation of the Academy's board of directors led to a profound restructuring of the institution.

Terzian was involved in a dispute in January 2020. A dinner was held to announce the nominees for the 45th César Awards, inviting various actors and staff of nominated films. Invitees were allowed to bring along another figure involved with the film industry with them. Two attendees submitted requests, one for director Claire Denis and the other for writer Virginie Despentes; both are known as feminists. The Academy's leadership rejected Denis and Despentes and refused to allow them at the ceremony.[1] An open letter signed by over 400 figures in the French film industry criticized the "arbitrary, even discriminatory manner" in which these two attendees were rejected, with no reason given, and criticized Terzian directly over the matter as the one who was behind the decision.[2]
