The Noor Iranian Film Festival (NIFF) was created to bridge the gap between Iranian and non-Iranian communities. Our goal is to shed "noor," or light, on Iranian culture through the medium of cinema. The festival also aims to cultivate and promote Iranian-American talent in Hollywood.
NIFF allows filmmakers to create dialogue on a global scale, express themselves, and to build a community of Iranians, and non-Iranians, that will help preserve and promote the beauty and essence of Iranian culture.
