What is Farsi Cinema Center?

Farsi Cinema Center is a Toronto-based nonprofit, nonpartisan platform connecting the Farsi film industries of Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan with the rest of the world. As the premier worldwide initiative devoted to Farsi cinema, its focus is on creating the space for networking, idea exchange, and collaboration among filmmakers, producers, talent, distributors and executives in film.
