Resistance fest to honor best adaptations of Sacred Defense books

Resistance Int’l Film Festival is to honor the best screen and TV adaptions of books on Sacred Defense.

The 16th Resistance International Film Festival is set to honor the best screen and TV adaptions of books on the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war (known as Sacred Defense in Iran) in a new special section this year.

Adaptions of books on the Islamic Revolution, resistance and regional issues, and Islamic awakening will be addressed in this section titled “Narration of the Pen Section”.

Screenwriters from across the world whose screenplays have not been made into films are invited to attend the festival in the three languages of Persian, English and Arabic.  

The second phase of the 16th Resistance Int’l Film Festival, to run on November 21-27, will also review films on Martyr Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani’s role in awakening people of the region and the world in the ‘Resistance Prominent Martyr’ section.  

The organizers have so far received over 700 submissions, including videos, short films, screenplays and mostly documentaries in this section.

The festival has been organized in two stages, the first of which took place during the Sacred Defense Week from September 21 to 28.

The second part of the festival will celebrate the anniversary of Basij Day, which falls on November 25.

The Association of the Revolution and Sacred Defense Theater organizes the festival every year in collaboration with several other institutions.
