By the end of the registration deadline of November 21, a total of 94 Iranian feature films applied to participate in the FFF.
A final list of 74 movies that comply with the rules of the Fajr will be submitted to the festival’s selection committee.
After a review of the films on the final list, only 22 movies at most will make their way to the festival’s competition section. The competing films will be announced next month.
The 40th Fajr Film Festival will include two sections: cultural and competitive.
The 2022 edition of the event will be headed by Masoud Naqashzadeh, and take place on February 1-11.
The FFF coincides with the Ten-Day Fajr ceremonies across Iran, marking the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
An international version of the event will be held later in 2022.
Starting from 2023, the domestic and international versions of Fajr will be once again held as part of one event titled “Fajr International Film Festival”.
Since its establishment in 1982, the FFF has played a vital role in the development of Iranian Cinema.
