Bulgarian film critic Dina Iordanova has been invited by the Iranian National School of Cinema to hold a workshop on film studies.

The invitation is part of a program the INSC is planning for holding educational courses by distinguished national and international critics and cineastes.

Spanish film critic, journalist, cinema historian and writer Carlos F. Heredero has been reported as one of the known teachers in the course.

According to the Persian website ISNA, subjects of the upcoming course include cinema studies, namely theory, analysis and critique.

Details of the course, date, duration and names of other teachers have yet to be announced.

Iordanova, 58, is an educationalist and professor of film studies at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland.

Her research approaches cinema on a metanational level and focuses on the dynamics of transnational film. She has special interest in issues related to cinema at the periphery and in alternative historiography.

She is among the editors of the book “Cinema at the Periphery” which includes contemporary approaches to film and media series.

The title examines the periphery in terms of location, practice, methodology and themes. It includes geographic case studies of small national cinemas on the global margins, like New Zealand and Scotland, but also of filmmaking that comes from peripheral cultures like Palestinian “stateless” cinema and Australian Aboriginal films.
