About the Farhang Foundation Short Film Festival

Founded in 2009, the Farhang Foundation Short Film Festival has become a leading festival dedicated to celebrating Iranian heritage through short film, video and animation.

Whether you are Iranian or non-Iranian, a veteran or aspiring filmmaker, the Farhang Foundation Short Film Festival is open to individuals from all backgrounds and walks of life. The festival has one hope in mind: to provide a forum for individuals to use their creativity and talent to spark and inspire interest in Iranian culture.

We welcome participants to submit works that visualize some aspect of Iranian arts, crafts, cuisine, culture, geography, and history. All entries will be judged for creativity, quality, and originality and will compete for a chance to win monetary prizes of $10,000, $5,000 or $3,000 and receive worldwide recognition through Farhang Foundation’s promotional campaigns.
