The famous Fajr International Film Festival (FIFF) returns to Tehran for its 36th event in early February, and a ceremony to draw screening brackets drew filmmakers and actors to the Mellat Cinema Complex last Wednesday.
MEHR News brings us a series of photographs of the FIFF event, which featured scrolls in a fishbowl hand-drawn at random by the invited guests.
Since 2015, FIFF is divided into two sections, with the February iteration focusing on local debuts and always aligning with the anniversary date of the 1979 Revolution. The international portion will later be held from April 19th to the 27th and under the direction of filmmaker Reza Mirkarimi.
