Zurich to Celebrate Iran Films

The second Iranian Film Festival Zurich (IFFZ) will be organized in the Swiss town May 26-June 1, screening 28 feature and short films in competition and non-competition sections.
This year’s edition of the event is dedicated to movies on issues of immigration, integration, and matters related to women in Iran and around the globe such as honor, solitude, sacrifice and love, Mehr News Agency reported.
A total of 19 feature films made between 2014 and 2016 about Iran or by Iranian filmmakers about other countries will be shown during the festival. The movies have been selected from top international film festivals such as Berlinale, Busan, Cannes and Fajr.
A five-member jury will judge the 11 feature films in competition including ‘Avalanche’, ‘Borderless’, ‘The Man Who Became a Horse’, ‘The Girl’s House’ and ‘A Romantic Robbery’. Moreover, eight short films will be evaluated by a three-member jury.
In the Special Screening section, eight movies including ‘Nahid’, ‘Unripe Pomegranate’, ‘I’m Not Angry’, ‘Death of the Fish’ and ‘I Am Diego Maradona’ will be shown.
The IFFZ has been organized to bridge the cultural gap between Iranians and Swiss as well as foreigners living in Switzerland. It seeks to serve as a platform for presenting Iranian culture and tradition among the many different nationalities living in Zurich through the universal language of art.
