Foreign and Iranian students of the Talent Campus of the 36th Fajr International Film Festival attended a workshop on film editing chaired by one of the world’s best in the field, Italian editor Roberto Perpignani.

The basics of film editing and more were the focus of the master’s workshop on Thursday at Charsou Cineplex in downtown Tehran, according to the festival website.

Perpignani, 76, has been teaching film editing in Rome’s prestigious film schools and colleges. He worked as editor with the Oscar-winning filmmaker Orson Welles.

In the class in Tehran, he talked about the legendary American auteur and how his collaboration with Welles had a profound impact and lasting impression on him and his career as film editor and tutor.

Each April, the FIFF attracts innovative storytellers, students and film fans to the nine-day gathering of the best independent Iranian and foreign films, filmmaking workshops and film market. Presided over by writer-director Reza Mirkarimi, the 36th edition of the festival is underway until April 27. The event has hosted over 300 guests, including filmmakers, screenwriters and actors.
