Edinburgh Iranian Festival 2020
Building on the success of previous festivals, this ninth festival takes place from 6 – 12 March 2020 and incorporates a dedicated and now annual Iranian Film Season at Filmhouse as part of the larger biennial Festival. This year’s theme for the Iranian Film Season is ‘Gender and Freedom of Movement in Iranian Society’ for which we’ve curated an extraordinary line-up of feature films, documentaries, and shorts, replete with post-screening conversations with the filmmakers followed by audience Q & As. We would like to thank all of our sponsors for supporting the festival as well as our incredible volunteers and the festival’s organisational team for their time and effort. Welcome to the Festival!
Celebrate our 10-year anniversary with us!

To celebrate our 10th year anniversary, we are looking for a striking poster design for the front cover of 2019’s festival brochure. The winning design, along with 11 other runner-up entries, will be displayed in the Filmhouse cinema café and our 2019 brochure as part of a graphic design exhibition. Open to all Iranian graphists around the world! For more information please see our Poster Competion Page.
