MSP Iranian Film Festival
The MSP Film Society is pleased to announce the Second Annual Iranian Film Festival. Back by popular demand, and coming August 15-18, 2019 on the Film Society’s Screen 3 at St. Anthony Main Theatre, the series will feature some of the best of contemporary Iranian cinema – films that would otherwise never be seen in the Twin Cities. It will also feature speakers/discussion facilitators, and when possible filmmakers themselves, to enrich the film-going experience.
Iranian cinema, long recognized as one of the most significant in the world, is once again flourishing and winning recognition at film festivals around the globe. And yet, very few Iranian films ever make it to American theaters. So, whether you are an admirer of Persian culture, a fan of Iranian cinema, a political junkie, or just an all-around international film buff, we know you will get so much out of this unique series.
Iran’s top directors are great storytellers. But this is about more than great art or entertaining films. We’ll showcase films that can give American audiences - at a time of increasing tensions between the US and Iran - a better understanding of contemporary Iran, a fascinating culture in the midst of rapid change.
More information about this program will be available soon at mspfilm.org.
