The 2021 edition of the event has published a call, asking popular artists to design the poster for the event until December 15, 2020.
The Ammar Popular Film Festival goes against the promotion of “individualism and extreme enjoyment without caring about the society's troubles and other humans’ suppression,” the event’s official website reads.
The festival aims “to raise real awareness and responsibility among the general public,” the website adds, noting that the event’s mission is to create an atmosphere in which independent filmmakers and thinkers can gather together.
The 11th edition of the festival is slated for January 2021 considering health protocols over the COVID-19 pandemic.
The public screenings of the selected films will be held on autumn 2021 in various Iranian cities.
