Renowned Iranian auteur, best known for his 1998 Oscar-nominated film 'Children of Heaven', Majid Majidi, will preside over the panel of jury at this year's International Film Festival of Kerala, in India.
The 36th Fajr International Film Festival (FIff36) began with the screening of 'Beyond the Clouds' by Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi. An India-set melodrama, the flick paints a texture-rich picture of humanity at its best and its worst.
Now it’s Moscow’s turn to show Iranian director Majid Majidi’s 'Muhammad: The Messenger of God' after the religion-themed film hit the silver screens in many countries including Iraq, Canada and Sweden.
'Muhammad: The Messenger of God', a film seven years in the making, had its world premier at the Montreal World Film Festival on Thursday morning. A poorly attended press screening was the fulfillment of the commitment director, Majid Majidi made to the festival.
