ÍRÁN:CI


With 8 accomplished editions in its consecutive history, ÍRÁN:CI has become an indelible part of the cultural calendar in Prague, Brno and Bratislava, and has turned into one of the well-awaited interactive showcases for art and culture lovers across these cities every January.

Organized in cooperation with Farsi Cinema Center, the festival is focused on the best works of Iranian cinema. With every edition, the festival program expands in form and content to widen the grasp of different arts for the audiences. This includes music performances, exhibitions, theatre performance, industry program and many educational workshops that have been organized within the structure of the festival with established artists such as Mehrdad Oskouei, Leila Hatami, Helena Trestikova, Mohammadali Talebi and Mani Haghighi.

A total audience of over 35,000 have visited the festival, watching over 200 films over the 8 consecutive editions. With an international team from Czech Republic, Iran, Slovakia, Canada, France, Lithuania and Afghanistan, the festival is, both in program and in structure, a true multicultural platform dedicated to arthouse cinema.
