TEHRAN (AIPFF) – Majid Khabazan believes that 1st AIPFF‘s agenda is a missing piece in the world’s film industry and the festival is what the world needs most now that most mainstream festivals fail to shed enough light on productions by independent filmmakers.

“We need a festival that can cover more such issues,” said Majid Khabazan in an exclusive interview with APFF, adding that production of such films needs the patience and valor of a certain many in the world would yearn to do whatever they can to help humanity in the globe.

He also commented on shooting of the Path to Gaza, a film he produced about the hardships Gazans undergo to survive under the Israeli besiege of their land, and said that most of the work was actually completed by his avid colleagues and activists like the film’s camera man Chris den Hond who is a human rights activist as well and his assistant Suzan Fenton who dared to step in the deep tunnels dug by Gazans to make way to the neighboring Egypt.

He also asserted that APFF is well organized but its programs and arrangements need to be made in a more orderly fashion in its future editions so that all its potentials will be activated as it deserves.

He called on establishment of a network among independent producers in the world by Ammar so that such productions are easily swapped by its members.
