Born in New York, Moaadi, 44, returned to Iran when he was five and grew up in Tehran. He is best known for acting in Asghar Farhadi’s Oscar-winning movie ‘A Separation’ (2011). His leading role in the movie earned him a Silver Bear award for Best Actor from the Berlin International Film Festival in 2011.  He has also written and directed a feature film and written the script for five movies, all of which were among Iran’s bestsellers. Moaadi’s debut movie as actor in Hollywood was ‘Camp X-Ray’ (2014) which also featured actress Kristen Stewart. Since then he has acted in several other films and TV series there. Scheduled for November 2-12, the Greek event is known for supporting independent talent and has recently proven to be a hub for many fareastern filmmakers.
