The African event hosted three Iranian movies in its competition line-up, including Nadarha 'The Poor' by Mohammad Reza Arab, Yeki Mikhad Bahat Harf Bezaneh (Someone Wants to Talk to You) by Manouchehr Hadi and 'Golchehreh' by Vahid Mousaian.
Secretary of the 31st International Fajr Film festival Mohammad Reza Abbasian received the award due to Mousaian's absence.
Also several other Iranian films have been shown in Zanzibar cities and islands concurrent with the festival.
A scene from Golchehreh
Golchehreh is based on a true story about Taliban in Afghanistan and how they tried to destroy their National film archive and closing the movie houses.
The film has been honored at several festivals and has won the Grand Prix award of the 2011 Batumi International Art-House Film Festival (BIAFF) in Georgia and the Red Rose Award of the 4th Jaipour International Film Festival (JIFF) in India.
