Public to enjoy 16th Iran’s cinema celebration

The Iranian House of Cinema is planning to hold the 16th Iran’s cinema celebration for public as well as cineastes, marking National Cinema Day.

The organizers decided to present programs for the public in several cities of Iran for the first time, said the executive director of the celebration Maziar Miri.

A number of movie theaters in Tehran, Mashhad, Qazvin, Isfahan, Shiraz and Ahvaz are slated to host the celebration programs on National Cinema Day, September 12.

Iranian cineastes will also celebrate the event at Tehran’s Milad Tower, Miri announced.

While the celebration will be held in the next few days, this year’s winners of the celebration in several categories were named during a ceremony held at Iran’s House of Cinema in Tehran.

The best animation award was presented to the group of animators of All the Winters I Haven’t Seen and best director award went to Omid Khoshnazar for the same animation.

The 17-minute animation set in New York City tells the story of a pregnant woman who discovers that there is a high likelihood her child will be born with severe physical defects due to her exposure to chemical weapons.

The prize for best screenplay was awarded to The Chick, written and produced by Mahboubeh Zaki. She also received the award for best producer.

The winners in the feature film section will be announced during Iran’s cinema celebration on National Cinema Day.
