According to the information center of the 30th international film festival for children and youth, walking through the old city of Isfahan made the festival’s foreign guests nostalgic. “I saw some photos from Iran when I was a little kid. And now I’m so excited to have the chance to see Naqsh-e Jahan square for the first time with my own eyes,” Jimbo, 31, from Japan, says. He’s been making films for 4 years. As he had an experience of working in a travel agency, Jimbo knows a lot about Iran, especially beautiful Isfahan. “I had an offer to make a documentary on South Korea. I’d be glad if I had the same chance to make a documentary on Isfahan,” he adds.
“We’ve already known that Iranian people are welcoming and generous so we weren’t surprised at all to meet kind Isfahanee people,” Chinese ladies visiting Naqsh-e Jahan say.
The festival is currently underway from June 30 to July 6 in Isfahan, screening more than 50 films with guests from 44 countries in attendance.
