The secretariat of the 12th edition of the festival has extended the registration deadline until November 21, 2021.
A number of feature films, documentaries, short films and animations from around the world will compete during the festival.
The APFF goes against the promotion of “individualism and extreme enjoyment without caring about the society's troubles and other human suppression,” the event’s official website noted.
The public screenings of the selected films will be held in winter 2022 in various Iranian cities.
The festival also enjoys an international version (AIPFF) which aims “to raise real awareness and responsibility among the general public,” the AIPFF website reads, adding that the event’s mission is to create an atmosphere in which independent filmmakers and thinkers can gather together.
