Concurrent with the ceremony, Littin’s film ‘Allende in His Labyrinth’ will also be screened for the first time.
The international section of Ammar Popular Film Festival (APFF International) has also planned to honor three outstanding Islamic Revolution directors, namely Masoud Jafari Jozani, Behrouz Afkhami and Hossein Zandbaf parallel with the ceremony.
The ceremony will be attended by noted figures such as Abolqassem Talebi, Masood Shojaie Tabatabaie, Mohammad-Hossein Niroumand, Ezatollah Motahari (Shahi), Salim Ghafouri, Ensieh Shah-Hosseini and Sina Vahed, Iran’s former cultural attaché in Argentine and a number of other Islamic Revolution artists.
The third edition of the APFF kicked off on August 24 and more than 5,000 films from 129 countries were reportedly submitted to the secretariat of the festival.
The theme of this year’s edition was the Influence of Arrogant World Powers on Other Countries. The festival sought to shed light on the CIA-assisted colonial coup in Iran, which overthrew the then government of democratically-elected then-Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddeq in favor of cementing the monarchical rule of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the then-Iranian monarch, back on August 19, 1953.
