THE VIth TEHRAN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL IN RETROSPECT


The Sixth Tehran International Film Festival officially ended at a closing ceremony in Rudaki Hall in the presence of Her Imperial Majesty, Empress Farah Pahlavi.

The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the festival jury's report and the award of prizes to competition winners by Her Imperial Majesty.

The Tehran International Film Festival is recognised by the International Federation of Film Producers' Association as a competitive event for features and short films, putting it on a par with such older festivals as Cannes and Berlin. This year the festival ran from November 15 to November 27.

The basic aim of the festival is to bring to the notice of the film world and the public, films of artistic value from both East and West in an effort to foster the humanistic elements in the cinema, and promote a better understanding between the peoples of the world. To this end the festival attempts to provide a forum for the exchange of views and constructive debate about the different aspects and problems of filmmaking today and facilitate the exchange of films on an international level.

This year 30 countries were represented in the festival and 150 films were shown in the main programmes open to the public.

In addition, over 100 features and short films were screened in 200 scheduled sessions during the 10-day period at the parallel film bazaar, which was attended by a total of 125 buyers and distributors from five continents.

The number of festival guests reached over 100, consisting of directors, producers, actors and actresses, critics and cineasts from 30 countries.

The countries taking part (in alphabetical order) were:

Algeria, Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, France, East Germany, West Germany, Hungary, Iran, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Lebanon, Mexico, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Panama, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Tunisia, United Kingdom, United States of America, USSR, Yugoslavia.
