The festival also enjoys an international version (AIPFF) which aims “to raise real awareness and responsibility among the general public,” the AIPFF website read, adding, “the event’s mission is to create an atmosphere in which independent filmmakers and thinkers can gather together.”
The 8th edition of the festival is scheduled to be held from December 27, 2017, to January 5, 2018, in Tehran.
