'Film festival to be held as part of Iran-Russia cultural agreements'

Tehran, IRNA – Iranian Minister of Culture Mohammad Mehdi Esmaeili has said that a film festival is to be held in Iran as part of recent cultural agreements between Iran and Russia.

Esmaeili told reporters on Wednesday on the sidelines of the Cabinet meeting in Tehran that Iran will soon launch the Caspian International Film Festival.

According to the agreements between Iran and Russia, cultural centers in Tehran, Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and some other cities will be held according to plans agreed with Russia, he added.

The steps will help broaden mutual cooperation in the sphere of culture, said the official who was in Russia earlier this month to discuss increased cooperation between  Tehran and Moscow on cultural projects. 

Last year, an Iranian animation movie was screened in Russia generating about $2.5 million in box office sales, said Esmaeili, adding that more Iranian cinematic works are planned to be screened in Russia according to recent agreements between the two countries.
