HELP SUPPORT 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.

FEATURE FILM COMPETITION JURY


BARBARA DAY

Barbara Day studied theatre in Prague in the 1960s, returning at the beginning of the 1980s to research her dissertation on the Theatre on the Balustrade and the relationship between theatre, society and politics in the Czech lands. 

This led to contacts with the “underground university” and the Jan Hus Educational Foundation, for which she worked as liaison between Britain and Czechoslovakia until 1989. In 1999 she published the story of the underground seminars as The Velvet Philosophers. 

She now lives in Prague and is occupied with translation, teaching and writing, having just published Trial by Theatre: Reports on Czech Drama (Karolinum Press).

NACIM PAK-SHIRAZ

Nacim Pak-Shiraz  is the Head of Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies and Senior Lecturer in Film and Persian Studies at the University of Edinburgh. 

She has published widely on Iranian visual culture, particularly on Iranian cinema. These include her monograph, Shi‘i Islam in Iranian Cinema: Religion and Spirituality in Film (2011), and Visualizing Iran: From Antiquity to Present (2017), a special issue edition of the Iranian Studies journal. 

She is also active on the cultural scene and engages with international film festivals both within and outside the UK.
