The 20th Iran Cinema Celebration named its nominees for awards in various categories with 'No Date, No Signature' and 'Pig' each receiving nominations in 10 categories.

In subsequent positions are 'Damascus Time' by Ebrahim Hatamikia and 'Asphyxia' by Freydoun Jeyrani with each receiving nominations in seven different categories each.

The 20th Iran Cinema Celebration, organized annually by Iranian House of Cinema to observe Iran's National Day of Cinema, published the list of nominees in categories which included Best Film, Best Director, Best Script, Best Actor/Actress, Best Score and the like.

'No Date, No Signature' recently won the Best Film Award at the Brussels International Film Festival.

Iran Cinema Celebration announced the lineup of a-list artists to be honored at latest run.

A commemoration ceremony is to be held for veteran Iranian actor Dariush Asadzadeh, well-achieved voice actor Abolhassan Tahaminejad and prominent filmmaker Dariush Mehrjoui.

Iranian author, novelist, journalist and screenwriter Mehdi Shojaee will also be awarded for lifetime achievement in Iranian art and culture.

Asadzadeh has appeared in over 80 films, 50 series and 10 plays. He is the author of the book 'A Journey through the History of Theater in Iran' which is a comprehensive reference of theater in Iran from the pre-Islamic era up to the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Modern Iranian cinema begins with Mehrjoui who is known as the founder of the Iranian New Wave movement.

The ceremony is due to be held on August 19 in Tehran Book Garden with the participation of Iranian cineastes, filmmakers, officials and artists.

Prominent Iranian actor Ali Nassirian will preside over the 20th Iran Cinema Celebration, according the organization's website. Last year, the chair of the event was Haroon Yashayayi.
