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.
