CONCORDIA UNIVERSITY’S CINEMA DE SEVE, MONTRÉAL
May 17- May 20
FCI’s mission is to present Middle Eastern films that international audience may not otherwise see. By introducing filmmakers who may not have access to other mediums, the Festival provides a forum for dialogue and exchange of ideas. The films presented in 2012 have not been had publicly screened for reasons such as expression of social, political or moral ideas. FCI’s ambition is to concentrate each year on one of the regions of the Middle East. Thus the first festival screened films made by Iranian filmmakers whether in or out of Iran as well as films that related to Iran.
During the four days of the festival, thirty four movies will be screened in various categories: documentary, experimental, video art, and long and short films differing in length with different times of 3 to 88 minutes. Most of the movies are in Persian with English or French subtitles and a few are in English.
