NIFF Mission

NIFF was created with the aim of shedding "noor," or light, on Iranian culture and heritage through the medium of cinema. The festival sees itself as an opportunity to allow filmmakers to create dialogue on a global scale, express themselves, and to build a community of Iranians and non-Iranians who will help preserve and promote the beauty and essence of Iranian culture, throughout the ages. The festival also cultivates and promotes Iranian-American talent in Hollywood.
