Iranian Film Festival

20 October 2016 - 20 November 2016

Iranian Film Festival Australia is the only nation-wide Australian festival dedicated to Iranian cinema.

Contemporary Iranian cinema is one of the world’s most exhilarating national cinemas. Their aims are to showcase a diverse range of the best and most interesting of current Iranian cinema, and through cinema to introduce Iranian culture to other Australians, providing a better cultural understanding.

IFFA is an independent non-political, non-aligned and non-religious private organisation run by Anne Démy-Geroe and Armin Miladi. They are NOT supported by the Islamic Republic of Iran. They are most definitely committed to an audience comprising both Iranian and non-Iranian members where people can mingle and talk among themselves, leading to a better cultural understanding.
