Kustendorf Film Fest to Praise Iranian Director

TEHRAN (FNA)- The 2010 Kustendorf film festival is to dedicate its Retrospective of Greatness section to award-winning Iranian director Asghar Farhadi.



Farhadi who has won the Silver Bear award of the Berlin Film Festival in 2008 is to screen his latest production 'about Elly…' at the Serbian Film Festival.

The film which narrates a story of love and anxiety and goes through the relations between Iranian men and women, won the Silver Bear award of the 59th International Berlin Film Festival and the Founders Award for Best Narrative Feature of the 8th Tribeca Film Festival in the US.

Farhadi has been awarded the Gold Hugo Award of the 2006 Chicago International Film Festival and the Best Director Award of the 13th Rabat Film Festival in Morocco.

Organized by Serbian filmmaker Emir Kusturica in the town of Drvengrad (also known as Kustendorf), the 2010 Kustendorf film festival will be held in early January this year.

The 2009 guest of the festival's Retrospective of Greatness was independent American filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, whose Stranger than Paradise (1984), Down by Law (1986), Dead Man (1995) and Broken Flowers (2005) were screened during the event.
