In addition, the Seifollah Daad Lifetime Achievement Award will also be presented to writer Seyyed Mahdi Shojaee for his lifelong contribution to Iranian culture and art.

The artists will receive their awards during a special ceremony, which will be held at the Tehran Book Garden on August 19.

The Iranian House of Cinema organizes the celebration every year to commemorate Iran’s National Day of Cinema, which is September 12 this year.

However, they have canceled the award ceremony of the celebration due to the current economic climate in the country.
