The 33rd Fajr International Film Festival

The international section of the 33rd Fajr Film Festival has been inaugurated in Tehran.

This year, the festival was split into two sections in order to promote international participation, said the festival director, Alireza Rezadad, during an opening ceremony held in the Iranian capital on Saturday.

This is the first time in the festival history that the international films have been given their own special event.

The ceremony was held in the presence of many prominent Iranian art and cultural officials and filmmakers from different countries.

The national section of the annual cinematic event was held in February during the celebrations to mark the anniversary of Iran’s Islamic Revolution.
