The top documents of the Portugal Doclisboa International Film Festival will be displayed in the 15th edition of the Cinéma Vérité Festival in Iran.
"Breeding Ground" directed by Pedro Filipe Marques, "Earth" directed by Hiroatsu Suzuki, Rossana Torres, "Perpetual Person", directed by Javier Bellido Valdivia, "Rio Torto", directed by Mário Veloso is among the top films of Doclisboa International Film Festival which will be displayed in the festival.
Doclisboa International Film Festival is being held on last October each year. The festival seeks to imagine reality through new cinematic forms of perception, reflection, and action, placing filmmaking into dialogue with its history to question the present of cinema.
Doclisboa is interested in films that are rigorous about their conceptual and formal implications; films that experiment with cinema’s artistic and political possibilities and refuse to be categorized; films that engage with and mirror the complexity of the world. It also offers a ground where cinema and the contemporary are investigated as acts of being together in, and with, time.
Presided by Hamidi-Moqadam, the 15th edition of “Cinema Verite” is slated to be held in Tehran from Dec 9-16, 2021.
The Documentary and Experimental Film Centre (DEFC) organizes the annual Iran International Documentary Film Festival.
