Art and Experience: Director of the Cinema Organization of Iran said Sun. that a Polish Film Week event has been canceled due to Tehran’s protest over an upcoming anti-Iran conference in Warsaw.
The announcement was made in a tweet posted by Director of the Cinema Organization of Iran, Hossein Entezami.
“The Iranians have welcomed various nationalities, especially the Poles, with open arms. A guest who does not respect the host has overstayed his welcome,” Entezami wrote in a tweet on Sunday.

An anti-Iran conference has been announced to be jointly hosted by the US and Poland on 13-14 February in Warsaw.
