The programming manager of the festival continued, “The locations of the festival palace, the hotels, etc. give the international guests the opportunity to explore the city. This in a chance which could not be offered if they were to reside uptown.”

Our section is responsible for programming and project control. In other words, we follow any other sections’ programs. We have also tried to have an information bank, containing all the necessary information about the guests’ residence and the festival programs.”
“We have also decided to document the festival programs and broadcast them live on the application of the festival TV which you can find on your cellphones.”, said Sanei Moghaddam.
