5th Parvin Film Festival

Parvin Film Festival which is named after the famous Iranian moralistic poet, Parvin Eā€™tesami, is also special to women (like Kowsar Film Festival). Here, female directors can screen their works and their male counterparts can also bring their works on women. Its main difference with Kowsar Film Festival was its international scope which included films from Sweden, Germany and UK. A subsidiary section was special to a poll conducted on 130 cultural and artistic figures of Iran who were asked to choose the best film on women in history of the Iranian cinema. The result showed that Bashu, the Little Stranger (Bahram Baizai) was chosen as the best. Baizai got the special statue of the festival from the experienced documentarian, Khosrow Sinai. In his remarks, he called Sousan Taslimi, the leading actress of his film, who has been living in Sweden for years now, as the most eligible actress of the Iranian cinema. In the international section of the festival, the main prizes were dispensed to Maryam Sadeqi Azad, Katrin Gholami and Arezou Ebrahimi. In the competition section for the Iranian films, the winners were Poupak Mozaffari, Babak Khorramdin, Tahereh Hassanzadeh, Mojgan Inanlou, and Anahita Qazvini
