A group of Iranian cineastes plans to begin a two-day visit to the quake-stricken regions in East Azarbaijan Province today to show their sympathy toward the survivors of two large quakes that hit the towns of Ahar, Haris and Varzaqan on August 11.

"We are heading to the regions to express our sympathy to the quake-stricken people and help them ease the pain of the tragedy and be hopeful about life," "The Lizard" star Parviz Parastuii, who is a member of the group, said in a press release on Saturday.

The group is also planning to hold a program at Tabriz's Azadi Cinema to raise funds for the quake victims today.

The cineastes previously organized a fundraising event for the Quake-stricken people at Tehran's Azadi Cinema on August 16.

At least 12 villages were totally leveled by the quakes, which killed 306 people. 425 other villages also sustained damage ranging from 50 to 80 percent.
