TIFF CINEMATHEQUE PRESENTS
I for Iran: A History of Iranian Cinema by Its Creators
March 5 â€“ April 4
Since the 1960s, Iran has produced one of the most distinguished national cinemas in the world, and one of the most difficult to see. This series, expanded from its original iteration at the 2014 Fribourg International Film Festival, gives Toronto audiences an invaluable opportunity to see these classics of world cinema on the big screen, the way they were meant to be seen.
Selected by fourteen top Iranian filmmakers, the films in this essential retrospective comprise a capsule history of one of the most distinguished national cinemas in the world.
