The third Iranian daily on domestic film industry ‘Cinema,’ will be published by Fereydoun Jeyrani, renowned film director and screenwriter.

The 16-page newspaper will be on the newsstands from September 19. A special attachment with every Wednesday issue will present an overview of local cinema history and analysis besides other related topics, Mehr News Agency reported.

Chief Editor Jeyrani said, “We plan to establish close communication with cinema through news, reports, criticism and analysis.” A different framework from conventional cinema media to create clear relations with film makers, producers and actors, will be used. He hoped the daily would be influential and maintain friendly relations with professionals in the field.

Commending the efforts of the two other dailies, he noted: “There have been gaps in analytical articles on Iran cinema. That’s why we are focusing on bridging the gap.”

Jeyrani, 64, began his career at 21. After working in theatre, he joined Mashad Free Cinema Group, and later, worked as a screenwriter.

He penned the screenplay for Rassul Sadr-Ameli’s 1984 highly acclaimed box-office hit, ‘The Chrysanthemums’. He also directed and wrote screenplays for ‘Red’ (1999), ‘Fire and Water’ (2001), ‘Pink’ (2003), ‘Season Salad’ (2005) and ‘Stars’ trilogy (2006), ‘Parkway’ (2007) and the TV series ‘Misunderstanding of a Dream’ (2015).
