A Lebanese actor said the Iran’s 16th Resistance International Film Festival is pivotal in the convergence of resistance artists to confront global arrogance.

Referring to the important role of this cinematic event in the regional developments, Hassan Hamdan stressed the need to pay due attention to this field, adding that resistance and Mujahedat enjoy high capacity for the production of films.

He added that the production of works with the content of resistance is a kind of tribute to the sacrifices and courage of the Mujahedeen that is why people who are active in the field of resistance cinema are among the Mujahedeen.

“At present, portraying the resistance of holy fighters is a devotedly-made measure. The people who make a film without intention and with sincerity, in order to turn their hearts to God as our creator are really defender,” he added.

The Lebanese actor underscored that this festival is very important in the convergence of artists in the field of resistance to confront global arrogance and its evil goals, such as the occupation of other countries.

Referring to the living’s requirements of Mujahedeen, he said, “These people are real supermen who are full of love in dealing with their families, but they are very violent in the face of enemies.”
