Iran’s children film festival 2014 to be held in Isfahan


The 28th edition of Iran’s International Film Festival for Children and Young Adults is programmed to be held in the historical city of Isfahan.

Over 300 screen productions from 54 countries have been submitted to the festival so far.

The participated films are to represent the countries such as Poland, The United States, Belarus, Argentina, Denmark, Thailand, Germany, Russia and many other countries.

Rasoul Sadrameli (director), Feryal Behzad (director), Mohammad Ali Safoura (director) along with two cineastes Javad Hatami and Amir Esfandiari are the members of this year’s selection committee.

A large group of Iranian and international cineastes and children flock to this annual festival to introduce their productions.

In last year’s edition Japan honored the Iranian festival with its peace symbol known as ‘Paper Cranes (Origami Cranes)’ while the event hosted Japanese peace activist Masahiro Sasaki and a number of Japanese children.

Founded in 1985, Isfahan’s children’s film festival was part of Fajr International Film Festival in its first three years.

The 28th Festival of Films for Children and Young Adults is scheduled to take place from October 3 through 6, 2014.
