Syria, Yemen, Myanmar in Focus at Broken Olive Branches Section

The 36th Fajr International Film Festival, slated for April 19-27, will screen more than 10 feature films focusing on the conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Myanmar at the ‘Broken Olive Branches’ section.
According to FIFF Secretary Reza Mirkarimi, the section goes beyond the catastrophe in Syria and will be devoted to contemporary crises, namely sectarianism, humanitarian crises, genocide and conflicts in Yemen and Myanmar.
According to a press release by the public relations office of the festival, the lineup includes documentaries and dramas from Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, Yemen and Turkey, which will have their premiere in Tehran.
International guests and filmmakers will also attend Q&A sessions after the screenings to discuss their movies and give a glimpse of the violence and heartbreak taking place in war-torn Syria and beyond.
The program is intended to shed light on ongoing developments in the region and the Muslim world, ensuring different voices and perspectives could be heard and seen by all those affected inside and outside the war zones.
The 36th FIFF will show some of the best films made in and outside Iran in various sections. Mirkarimi will serve as the secretary of the festival for the third consecutive year.
The event has been held independently from the national Fajr Film Festival for the past four years.
Similar to the previous two editions, the festival will hold  ‘Classics Preserved’ and ‘Darolfonoon’ sections as well.
Four films from Iran (two feature and two short films) and seven from other nations are scheduled for ‘Classics Preserved’ section which deals with the restored movies.
Darolfonoon is a talent campus that targets young filmmakers and cinema enthusiasts.
Young talents from Iranian cities as well as other nations will take part in expert sessions chaired by masters of cinema from Iran and the world.
