Jafar Panahi - Filmmaker of the World

 

Shortly after the Berlinale invited Jafar Panahi to be on this year's International Jury, he was sentenced to six years in prison and banned from filmmaking for the next 20 years. Ever since, people have been protesting worldwide against this verdict as it violates the right to freedom of opinion and expression in the arts.

 

 

The Berlin International Film Festival very strongly condemns the harsh sentences imposed on the distinguished Iranian director Jafar Panahi and his colleague Mohammad Rasoulof. The Berlinale is holding a place open in the Jury for Jafar Panahi to signalize its support for his struggle for freedom.

 

 

In 2011, the Berlinale will show five films by Jafar Panahi, one in each of several sections and so call attention to the artist's extraordinary oeuvre, an oeuvre for which he has been sentenced by the Iranian regime. The first of these films will be screen in the Competition section: Offside (2006, Silver Bear) in the Berlinale Palast at 4:30 pm on February 11, 2011. On the following days, the other Panahi films will be presented in the Panorama, Forum, Generation and Berlinale Shorts sections.
