About IFFA 

Now in it’s eight year, Iranian Film Festival Australia is the only nation-wide Australian festival dedicated to Iranian cinema. Our aim is to showcase a diverse range of the best and most interesting of current Iranian cinema, one of the
world’s most exhilarating national cinemas, and through cinema to introduce Iranian culture to other Australians, providing a better cultural understanding. 
IFFA commenced in 2011, opening with A Separation straight from its Berlin Golden Bear win and before its Oscar win. It expanded from three to five Australian capital cities in 2012. In 2016, Perth was included in the main circuit of the festival to be covering six major capital cities of Australia. 
Many Iranians consider IFFA the key Iranian cultural event in Australia.  
This year’s program includes recent films from some of the most prominent Iranian directors such as Jafar Panahi’s 3 FACES (Winner of Best Script at Cannes 2018 ) , Bahmam Farmanara’s TALE OF THE SEA (2018 Moscow Film Festival) and Mani Haghighi’s Black-Comedy, PIG (2018 Berlinale official competition) along with the work of new generation of filmmakers such as Abbas Amini’s HENDI & HORMOZ​ (2018 Berlinale) & Mostafa Sayari’s ​AS I LAY DYING​ (Venice Film Fest 2018) .
