Welcome to the fourth Iranian Film Festival Australia (IFFA) 2014, Khosh Amadid! 

به چهارمین جشنوارهٔ فیلمهای ایرانی استرالیا ۲۰۱۴ خوش آمدید

IFFA returns with the best and most interesting in contemporary Iranian cinema for the 4th year. This year the programme reflects the new political scenario around Iran’s film industry with enthusiasm. 

IFFA is proud to open with I’m Not Angry, Reza Dormishian's second film which premiered at this year’s Berlin Film Festival and features Baran Kosari (Hatred 2012). The festival closes with Fish & Cat by Shahram Mokri, a single take horror film with no violence! The winner of the innovation prize at Venice Film Festival 2013. The edgy Kami’s Party and 13, and the elegiac Snow are all debut features inscribed by contemporary issues. From established directors come two wonderful films about families – Maziar Miri’s The Painting Pool along with Kianoush Ayari’s The Paternal House. The delightful evergreen Haji Washington (1982) screens with a small gem, the pre-Revolutionary short P for Pelican from Parviz Kimiavi.

So far we've had an awesome audience for Shahram Mokri's Fish & Cat, which was presented the IFFA NETPAC (Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema) for 2014. Among previous Iranian film makers who have won this highly coveted award are Bahman Farmanara, Mani Haghighi, Babak Payami and Maryam Shahriar.

Be omid-e- didar (See you at the festival!)
