Fajr Film Festival Announces Special Guests

Festival Organizers are pleased to announce that well over 350 guests from 66 countries will be in attendance.

Speaking to reporters, spokesperson Alireza Shojanouri said there will be appearances from 31 Asian, 23 European, and 6 African countries. At least 5 special guests from the American continent and Australia will also participate. There will be celebrity guests from 24 Muslim nations as well.

Shojanouri explained that the guests come in different groups, mainly A-list directors, screenwriters, actors, special effects gurus, producers, festival managers, film buyers, and film sellers.

Young movie talents under the age of 27 will also participate. Half of them are from Iran (55 trainees) and the rest from regional and Asian countries. They will take part in weeklong film workshops entitled Darol Fonoun.

In conclusion, the spokesperson noted that the festival’s International Club has well over 15,000 registered members. Club membership is going up steadily; members can reserve tickets online and at discount prices, or make selections in advance to take part in special screening programs.
