Iranian Bloggers are Writing about Cinema

Iranian films have been prize winners in festivals for several years. Thanks to movie directors such as Kiarostami, Panahi, Majidi,…Iranian can be proud of their cinema. Each year a few Iranian movies find their way to theatres in the West. Some Iranian directors and cinema students are blogging and share their creations, ideas, favourite movies and political opinion with us.

Some of bloggers have chosen very attractive names which remind us cinema's magic world. New Wave (link in Farsi) is one of these blogs. New Wave introduces new movies such as Night Watch and gives a detailed explanation about Hotel Rwanda. Cinemaye Azad (link in Farsi) (Free Cinema) is another blog which reports about Iranian cinema in exile. Blogger has published Alamezadeh's(link in Farsi), a famous Iranian director, interview. LongShot (link in Farsi) is another blogger which publishes scripts (or pieces of a script).

An Iranian movie director who was persecuted before and after revolution is Alamezadeh. This Nederlands based director who has created both fiction and documentary is blogging. His blog provides first hand information about his creations, writings, political ideas and trips. He really created a blog about art and literature. His final work is about Mosadegh.

Iranian bloggers write and create beyond politics, petitions and political prisoners. Art is well present in Iranian blog city.
