This year, FIff will open in Tehran on May 26 and run through June 2.
This major film festival was scheduled to be held in April 2020; however, amid growing concerns over the coronavirus during March 2020, the organizers postponed it to a later time in June, which was also canceled.
Since its establishment in 1982, the Fajr Film Festival has played a vital role in the development of Iranian Cinema.
The 39th edition of the national version of the festival was held from January 31 to February 10.
