The 34th International Film Festival for Children & Youth (ICFF) is to launch a museum and archive center, featuring documents such as posters of previous editions, said the secretary of the 34th edition of the festival.
Mehdi Sajjadzadeh added that the idea of having such a museum was first proposed two years ago by the executive director of the festival, Iman Hojjati, icff.ir wrote.
“Since then, agreements were made with organizations such as the Farabi Cinema Foundation, Ministry of Education, State Welfare Organization of Iran, known as Behzisti, the Center for the Intellectual Development of Children and Adolescents, and some others which we supposed might have some documents from the festival but, unfortunately, the outbreak of the coronavirus postponed the launching of the museum,” he noted.
Sajjadzadeh said that it is probable that this year’s festival will be held in hybrid form, like last year.
More than 80 international films have been submitted to the secretariat of the festival in Iran.
The 34th edition of the event, run by Iran Cinema Organization, in association with Farabi Cinema Foundation and the Isfahan Municipality, will be held in the central Iranian city from October 8 to 13.
The ICFF “aims to promote ethical values such as family unity, appropriate lifestyle, respect for humanity, self-esteem, social responsibility, environmental protection and also seeks to create awareness of future challenges,” according to the event’s official website.
