1st UK Iranian Film Festival

1st UK Iranian Film Festival

UKIFF is delighted to announce the inaugural 1st London Iranian Film Festival, commencing on November 19, 2010.

Film festivals that honour Iranian films are held annually across the globe and now the time has finally arrived for an Iranian Film Festival to have a permanent home in the United Kingdom. With a diverse programme celebrating the best of contemporary Iranian films, the festival will showcase some of the finest talents of this rich cinematic culture.

Whilst acclaimed Iranian Directors may well be familiar to the UK audiences, a new generation of emerging voices remain largely unknown. The intention of the London Iranian Film Festival is to introduce this undiscovered new talent to London’s film enthusiasts, as well as celebrating the work of legendary Iranian filmmakers.

The London Iranian Film Festival is currently seeking submissions with consistent Iranian elements within the following categories:

Feature Film (more than 60 minutes)
Documentary (no longer than 3 hours)
Short Film (no longer than 30 minutes)

Submissions open on 06/08/2010.
Final deadline on 17/09/2010.

The chosen films will be screened at two of London’s most prestigious cinema venues in a weeklong event that will include Q and A’s. The Festival offers a number of travel and accommodation allowances to participating filmmakers.

The 1st London Iranian Film Festival promises to be a landmark event in promoting Iranian film culture within the UK.

We look forward to welcoming you to the occasion.
