Welcome to Minnesota’s first annual Iranian Film Festival! If you sign up to attend this event, you’ll get updates on films, speakers and more.
The festival will feature some of the best of contemporary Iranian cinema – films that have never before been seen in the Twin Cities. We plan to bring speakers to introduce and lead discussions after the films, and when possible the filmmakers themselves, to add clarity and insight to the film-going experience.
Iranian cinema, long recognized as one of the most significant in the world, is once again flourishing, and winning international awards and recognition at film festivals around the globe. And yet, very few Iranian films ever make it to theaters in the Midwest or, for that matter, in the United States. With this first Iranian Film Festival, we’ll showcase films that can give American audiences a better understanding of contemporary Iran, a fascinating culture in the midst of rapid change.
We rely on donations to make this film festival happen – if you would like to contribute or be a producer, please make your tax-deductible contribution at http://mspfilm.org/donate-iranian-film-series/
