Festival of Iranian Films in Prague

Festival of Iranian Films in Prague Hollywood’s supremacy in the world’s cinema has long been contested by the globe’s less likely protagonists of contemporary film, and we’re not only speaking about India’s buoyant Bollywood industry; there’s Korea, Argentina and Hungary vying for the spotlight as well. Iran will be the center of attention during the upcoming film festival in Prague, taking place between January 11 and 15 at the city’s art house cinema Svetozor.

Cinematic works from this country, especially from its capital Tehran, will be showcased including Nader and Simin, A Separation, an incredibly successful 2011 drama by Asghar Farhadi, the winner of Berlinale and nominated for Oscars. Aside from feature films, documentaries will also be shown including Here is Tehran, an insider view of the capital’s graffiti and arts scene.
