Ali Khorshidpur has designed the poster that features an old photo of an Iranian girl and a boy dating back to the advent of cinema.
The poster celebrates the 120-year history of Iranian cinema.
“The Fajr festival is Iran’s most important art and cultural event,” the secretary of the festival, Reza Mirkarimi, said in a statement published on Friday.
He added that the festival’s main focus is Asian cinema, and movies from some top filmmakers of the region will be selected to screen this year.
Mirkarimi also said that the festival plans to reinforce its academic and educational aspects.
He also noted that a variety of educational programs, workshops and meetings will be organized during the event, which will be running from April 19 to 27 in Tehran.
The Cinema Organization of Iran, which is affiliated with the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance and is also the main organizer of the Fajr International Film Festival, decided in 2015 to organize the international competition of the festival separately from the national section to provide greater opportunities to exchange experiences and thoughts with the world’s cinema.
