Thessaloniki International Film Festival



Dailies from the Thessaloniki international Film Festival

The 61st Thessaloniki International Film Festival was concluded with great success, receiving the audience’s love in every possible way. More than 80,000 viewers and movie industry professionals watched the films and attended the Festival’s online events, whereas a large number films of were sold out. Agora, the Festival’s development branch, also achieved a great attendance, offering support to Greek cinema through a series of new initiatives, actions, and awards.

The 61st Festival hosted a series of exhibitions and visual art events, within the framework of TIFF’s main concept, “Intimacy: a modern tyranny”. Works of art, video mapping, as well as The Glasshouse Project installation adorned the city streets and squares, as well as the Port of Thessaloniki, offering glimpses of joy and hope to the city’s residents, who had the chance to enjoy a touch of art during their scarce walks for exercise, groceries and the covering of basic needs, amidst these hard days we’re experiencing. The goal is for these exhibitions to remain in the city’s public space even after the Festival.

Emergency statement from filmmaker Bahman Ghobadi…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Emergency statement from filmmaker Bahman Ghobadi…

“My younger brother, Behrouz Ghobadi, disappeared more than two weeks ago, and I have learned he has been detained by Iranian authorities and accused of acting against national security. My family and I are certain he is innocent and incapable of such actions. We are extremely concerned about his well-being and ask the Iranian authorities to release him immediately.

We now know that Behrouz was detained by Iran’s Intelligence Ministry. Over the last two weeks he has been denied his basic rights, including contact with his family and access to a lawyer. We have searched for him at several prisons and have asked the Iranian judiciary for news, but no one has told us where he is being held.

In the early morning of Sunday, November 4, Behrouz left Sanandaj, Iran, in a taxi headed for Tehran to catch a flight. We later learned that around 15 kilometers outside Sanandaj, plainclothesmen riding in two cars stopped the cab and arrested him.

Behrouz is not involved in any political or opposition activities. He was interested in film, served as a production manager in some of my movies, and directed a few short films. He is 40 years old and a Sunni Iranian Kurd who moved last year from Iran to Kurdistan, Iraq to run a store that sells shampoo and soap. One month ago, his wife gave birth to their first child, a son, Harmang.

We are extremely worried about Behrouz, especially because of his chronic health issues. He has platinum posts in both of his legs from a car accident several years ago in Kurdistan, Iran. He also requires care and medication for his gout, weak heart, and respiratory problems. We ask that Iranian authorities release him immediately.”

Bahman Ghobadi Nov. 19, 2012
