Contemporary short film spans from student talents to professional festival movies.
New Iranian Short Films
Short film always had an importance as experimental ground for new forms: even the masters of Iranian Nouvelle Vague (“Mouje Nou”) – Ebrahim Golestan, Kamran Shirdel, Parviz Kimiavi, Abbas Kiarostami, to name just a few – in the1960s and 1970s tried themselves in this genre.
Contemporary short film spans from student talents to professional festival movies. Majid Barzegar and Shahram Mokri from the “Iranian Short Film Association” (ISFA, in cooperation with “Khaneh Cinema”) will present a “list of bests”; in two shows we will watch fiction and animation, documentary and experimental. The factors of production, the means of education and organisation for young filmmakers within Iran shall be discussed along the way.
