Fajr Film Festival to be extended to 31 Iranian provinces

The 37th Fajr Film Festival will extend its screening and showcase the selected films in 31 Iranian provinces, provincial manager of the festival said.

Based on the plans, the 37th Fajr films will be screened in 31 provinces at the same time, from February 1-11.

According to Seyyed Hossein Seyyedi, every province should suggest two well-equipped cinema halls for the program.

A total number of 11 or at most 14 top Fajr films will be selected to go on screen in Iranian provinces. Details of the plan will be announced later, wrote.

Established in 1982, the Fajr Film Festival is an event that celebrates cultural exchange, displays creative achievements of highly acclaimed cineastes and pays tribute to local and international films.

Since its establishment, the festival has played a vital role in the development of the Iranian cinema.

Supervised by Iran’s Culture Ministry, the festival hosts veteran directors and new filmmakers from Iran and across the world every year.

The prestigious film festival will not screen any film on February 8 and 9 due to the martyrdom anniversary of Hazrat Fatemeh (PBUH), daughter of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
