Minister of Culture: Tehran Festival Reflective of Dear Iran in Light of Cultural Justice Policy

Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance in a message celebrating the 39th round of Tehran International Short Film Festival stated, "One can witness dear Iran reflected in this festival in light of the cultural justice policy for all the talented young people of this country."

Iran (MNA) - Mohammad Mehdi Esmaeili, minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance, sent a message commemorating the 39th edition of TISFF, noting,
"Taking into account the synchronous occurrence of Rabiʽ al-Awwal with the spring of Iran's short film cinema, the 39th round should be considered a good omen in these days.
This festival has three features; to me who has previously dabbed in university instruction and hopes to do so afterward, spending time with youngsters, this festival has always possessed a special kind of charm. First of all, this festival specializes in short films and celebrates brevity; i.e. how to express the deepest thoughts in the shortest amount of time.
Secondly, this festival focuses on the young more than other cinematic events and is a compilation of young film lovers' concerns, moods, beliefs, as well as hopes, and consternations. With this year's special attention to the variety in genre using an ethnic perspective, we hope to be a messenger of hope, merriment, and variety.

Thirdly, in this feast of thoughts, filmmakers from all around the country are present, reflecting the spirit of dear Iran in light of the cultural justice policy, for all talented youngsters. Since applicants from 131 countries around the globe have so far attended this event, what would be an ampler opportunity to better introduce Iran as it is to people across the world?
Tehran Short Film Festival is a brief though inspiring opportunity for the young who will assuredly secure a bright future for Iranian cinema, and I personally pride myself on having them around. Hopefully, this festival will be a source of awareness-raising, inspiring hope, ethics, and justice for the future of the country's cinema."
