Art and Experience: The 18th edition of the Hafez Awards, Iran’s first and only private awards in the film industry and TV productions, will be held in Tehran on August 13, the organizers announced on Sunday.

Critic and producer Ali Moallem was the founder of the awards, which are annually organized by his Persian cinematic monthly Donya-ye Tasvir (Picture World).

Moallem died of a heart attack in March 2017 but the magazine and the awards were kept alive by Moallem’s widow, Azar Memarian, and his son, Omid.

Nominees and the location that will host the awards ceremony will be announced later.

Donya-ye Tasvir plans to honor Hiva Masih, a writer, with a lifetime achievement award during the Hafez Awards.
