Macedonia hosting Iranian Film Week

The Republic of North Macedonia is hosting an Iranian Film Week from February 19 as part of a program to mark the 40th victory anniversary of Iran's Islamic Revolution.

The film week, which will continue until February 23, has been welcomed by Macedonian cinema enthusiasts, reported.

The event is screening six Iranian feature movies in Skopje, the capital city of North Macedonia.

Iran's Ambassador to Macedonia Hossein Karimi attended opening ceremony in which he addressed the audiences on the human and moral achievements of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

"Iran's Islamic Revolution emphasizes human and moral issues more than anything else; and that's why our country has a long track record in art, particularly cinema," Karimi said.

He further noted that Iran is currently among the top five countries in the cinema industry producing more than 100 films annually.

The lineup of Iranian titles at the event includes 'The Children of Heaven' by Majid Majidi, 'Café Transit' by Kambozia Partovi, 'Where is the Friend's Home?' by Abbas Kiarostami, 'Where Are My Shoes?' by Kioumars Pourahmad, 'Don't Be Embarrassed' by Reza Maqsoudi, and 'Don't Get Tired!' by Mohammadreza Alipayam.
