2007 Festival

2007 Program Book Cover

With an amazing red carpet debut, NIFF first launched in 2007, making it the first Iranian film festival competition to occur outside of Iran. Focusing on the theme of "Tolerance," in its inaugural year, NIFF received over 400 submissions from Iranians around the world.

The first panel of judges included Natasha Henstridge (Species), Maz Jobrani (The Interpreter), Harry J. Lennox (Matrix Reloaded & Revolution), Shaun Toub (Crash) and Kyle Secor (Commander in Chief). With their active participation and later encouragement, Noor Iranian Film Festival quickly became an annual festival that continues to enlighten and inspire attendees today.
