As the hype around the hotly-anticipated ‘Night of the Full Moon’ grows larger, studios in Iran has started to put tickets on sale much earlier, generating an ever-increasing amount of fan anticipation.
Iranians are exhilarated to ensure they have their tickets ahead of time, rather than get to the theater on release day and find they cannot get into the sold-out show.
The big winner of the 37th Fajr Film Festival ‘Night of the Full Moon’ by Narges Abyaris has been anticipated to shatter records for movie ticket presales in Iran box office.

Night of the Full Moon’ recounts a true love story of Abdul-Hamid Rigi, a member of the Jundallah terrorist group.
The film is co-written by Narges Abyar and Morteza Isfahani, directed by Narges Abyar and produced by Abyar’s husband Mohammad Hossein Qassemi in 2018.
