Cinema

 Iranian cinema is recognized as one of the most innovative national cinemas in the world today.Giants of world cinema, such as Jean-Luc Godard, Akira Kurosawa, and Werner Herzog, have lavishly praised Iranian filmmakers. Film festivals the world over have recognized Iranian cinema by rewarding Iranian films and filmmakers.

An important growth area was participation in international film festivals. Both the number of Iranian films and the number of times Iranian films entered international film festivals rose. The number of films entering international film festivals rose from 35 in 1991 to 95 in 2005. Similarly, the number of film festivals held in Iran rose from 9 to 22 in the same time period.

A growth area that reflects a notable film culture and a strong interest in filmmaking is the number of private (vocational, non-degree granting) film schools and academies (reaching 158 in 2005). The number of nongovernmental film production companies rose only modestly for the period from 20 to 25, reflecting the difficulties of privatization of the film industry in Iran. The formation of various non-governmental associations, which rose from 47 to 99 by 2005, is an interesting and encouraging development. However, the non-governmental industry guild, House of Cinema (Khaneh Cinema), is effectively a liaison between these newly formed associations and the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance.

The institutionalization of cinema over the last two decades, a strong film culture already established, the international demand for Iranian films, and a seemingly endless supply of new talent will keep Iranian cinema viable for the time being.
