The acclaimed documentaries Sunless Shadows directed by Mehrdad Oskui and The Marriage Project co-directed by Hesam Eslami and Atieh Attarzadeh will be competing in the official competition of the festival. 

In Sunless Shadows, Oskui builds a remarkable relationship with a group of adolescent girls who are serving their sentences for the grave crime of murdering their father, their husband or another male family member in an Iranian juvenile detention center.

The Marriage Project is about the head of a psychiatric hospital in Tehran, who encourages the patients to form relationships with each other, get married and live as a family.

No Place for Angles by Sam Kalantari, Asho by Jafar Najafi, Song Sparrow by Farzaneh Omidvarnia and Waterfolk by Azadeh Bizargiti are also among the films to be screened in other sections of the festival, which will be held from March 27 to April 4.
