An Iranian Film Festival

The 10th Annual Iranian Film Festival in San Francisco, the first of its kind outside of Iran, will be taking place on September 23rd and 24th at the San Francisco Art Institute. The venue for the festival is about a half an hour from the Alpine Inn & Suites, but the entries this year are well worth the drive. Amir Naderi is premiering his new film Mountain at the festival. Described as “Extraordinary” by Variety, Mountain tells the story of Agostino, who struggles with living in the shadow of the titular mountain. The festival will also feature documentaries and animated films by some of the most promising Iranian directors in the world. Films like If You Go Away, The Last Tar, A Sweet Dream, and Poetry in Bronze are sure to be standouts at this incredible festival. Whether you are a dedicated cinephile, an Iranian history buff, or just looking for new insights into a different culture, the Iranian Film Festival is an event you won't want to miss.
