Crowds poured in for the sixth consecutive day as the 38th edition of the Fajr Film Festival put behind another eventful day on Thursday.
Day six featured the premieres of ‘Dying in Holy Water’ directed by Navid Mahmoudi and ‘Slaughterhouse’ directed by Abbas Amini.
Press conferences were held featuring filmmakers and the main cast members from each film.
The Fajr Film Festival coincides with the Ten-Day Fajr (Dawn) ceremonies across Iran, marking the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
Since its establishment in 1982, the Fajr Film Festival has played a vital role in the development of Iranian Cinema.
Supervised by Iran’s Ministry of Culture, the festival hosts veteran directors along with up and coming filmmakers from Iran every year.
The 38th edition of the event is currently underway and will run until February 11 in Tehran.
An international version of the event is also set to be held in April 2020.
