About NIFF:
A non-profit, non-religious and non-political organization, the Noor Iranian Film Festival (NIFF) was created to shed light, or ‘noor,’ on Persian culture, helping to express the beauty of a culture that is commonly misportrayed in mainstream media. In 2005, Iranian-born Siamak Ghahremani co-founded the festival (with actor Anthony Azizi), and the inaugural international event occurred in 2007. The mission for the festival is to educate the non-Iranian community about the culture and heritage of Iranians around the world through the medium of cinema. Not without challenges, the festival supports filmmakers whose voice cannot be heard inside of Iran and around the world.

The NIFF hosts premieres, networking events, and panel discussions and ends with the closing night Awards Ceremony held at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, California. The event is also dedicated to cultivating and promoting Iranian-American talent in Hollywood. Screenings are held at the Laemmle Music Hall (9036 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills, California).
