Iran’s Fajr Film Festival sees a great reception to ticket presale for the 40th edition of the festival. 

Mohammad-Reza Faraji, the head of the cinema affairs of the 40th FFF, told reporters “Fortunately, we are witnessing a great reception to the ticket presales for the 40th Fajr Film Festival and many people are still buying the festival’s tickets.”

He stressed that social distancing and hygiene will be maintained in all cinemas in order to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Faraji noted that screenings of the official selection will kick off in Tehran on February 1, adding that the screenings will take place in 61 cinemas across the capital.

Meanwhile, the screenings will kick off in other Iranian provinces on February 4.

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.
