1st London Iranian Film Festival

THE UKIFF have announced 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 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 enthusiast’s, 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 with the final deadline on 17/09/2010.

 The chosen films will be screened at two of London’s most prestigious cinema venues in a week long event that will include Q and A’s.
