Cinema Iran 2016


3rd Iranian Film Festival in Munich 06. – 11.07.2016

Cinema Iran is excited to present – in cooperation with Münchner Stadtbibliothek and Evangelische Stadtakademie – a selection of current Iranian fiction and non-fiction feature films at the library’s lecture hall at Gasteig.

The films chosen for the festival program all present Iran from different perspectives, both internal and external, and cover a wide range of topics such as culture-specific issues, art, historical heritage, and love. They allow the audience to gain insight and to immerse themselves into the colourful everyday life and the diverse history of the Iran.

The festival also includes a photography exhibition about the daily life of the urban post-revolutionary generation by internationally renowned visual artist and photojournalist Kaveh Rostamkhani and a literary reading with German-Iranian author Shida Bazyar from her debut novel (“Nachts ist es leise in Theran”) in which she looks back at Iranian history and events since 1979 through the eyes of her family. Movie-discussions with the lead-actress of the opening film “Lantouri” Maryam Palizban and filmmaker and artist Shahram Entekhabi give the audience an opportunity to engage with the film on an interactive level and round this year’s festival program off.

The City of Munich’s Kulturreferat and Filmstadt Munich e.V. sponsor this event.
