Iranian Film Festival Australia
Khosh amadid! Welcome back!
Iranian Film Festival Australia 2012: Thursday 25 – Sunday 28 October
For the last twenty years one of the most exciting national cinemas has been that of Iran. With its recent Oscar for A Separation, (our 2011 opening night film) and many other major awards around the globe, it has re-inforced its position as a national cinema of major significance, despite its position as a major site of conflict within Iranian politics and the often difficult circumstances under which Iranian filmmakers operate.
This second edition of Iranian Film Festival Australia, now nation-wide, showcases the best of 2011 and 2012 in all its diversity. An exciting mix of dramas and comedies, it features the best and most interesting of contemporary Iran’s established and new directors, and many of its major actors.
This year’s festival opens with The Last Step on Thursday 25th October 7pm, and will be accompanied by a catered opening night celebration.
