WCSFP at Ahvaz International Science Film Festival
This February, Judy Rymer and Christine Le Goff took Congress into brand new territory at the first Ahvaz International Science Film Festival. The remarkable event, masterminded by Mohammad Atebbai, exhibited 120 local and international films, and included a workshop program for local filmmakers and a selection of international presentations. The WCSFP session created a great deal of interest, grappling with the issues that make it difficult for Iranian filmmakers to travel, and we hope to work toward having an Iranian delegation at an upcoming Congress.
