PAAIA Brings the Noor Iranian Film Festival to the San Francisco Bay Area

June 26, 2013Washington, D.C. – The Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans (PAAIA) is proud to announce that it is bringing the “Best of the Noor Iranian Film Festival” to San Francisco this summer. On Friday, July 19, Saturday, July 20, and Sunday, July 21,2013, the PAAIA San Francisco chapter and the Diaspora Arts Connection will be screening past winners of the Noor Iranian Film Festival (NIFF) at Central Stage. Selected films that will be shown include “Hayedeh: Legendary Persian Diva,” “A Conversation to Remember,” and “Tamom Gol,” among many others. The event is free for PAAIA members.

NIFF was created with the aim of shedding “noor,” or light, on Iranian culture and heritage through the medium of cinema, and thus shares PAAIA’s core tenet of image-building. Given the troubling political climate currently surrounding Iran, the festival sees itself as an opportunity to allow filmmakers to create dialogue on a global scale, express themselves, and to build a community of Iranians and non-Iranians who will help preserve and promote the beauty and essence of Iranian culture, past and present. The festival also cultivates and promotes Iranian American talent in Hollywood.
