CineIran Festival is an annual celebration of the best of contemporary Iranian cinema. The festival aims to bring the most acclaimed Iranian films of the year to Toronto's screens in an effort to present a comprehensive cross-section and showcase the depth and diversity of this national cinema. CineIran's films exhibit the most prominent filmmakers and cinematic movements currently active in the Iranian scene and are selected from a wide range of genres and modes. From documentaries, short and experimental films to arthouse successes and domestic commercial hits, the festival's scope gives Toronto's cinephiles an unparalleled experience of Iranian cinema. The inaugural edition was held in November 2015. The 3rd edition of the festival is scheduled for November 17th-19th, 2016.
