According to the public relations office of the 34th edition of Fajr International Film Festival, screenplay writer of The Girl said: this year is the first year that I would like to be just a simple viewer because of the fantastic atmosphere of the festival.
He talks about the differences of the current festival compared to last year festival and he said: I cannot compare this year event to the last year festival as there is no resemblance.
He continued: I cannot mention the differences as there are many of them. The ambience of the festival spreads good vibration. The atmosphere has been created for artists, students and fans is wonderful.
He insisted that the schedule of all sections of the festival is really accurate and he said: holding the workshops in opening areas is a great notion that leads to a positive interactive ambience.
He also mentioned the workshops holding in Faculty of Cinema and Theater and he added: holding the workshops in Faculty of Cinema and Theater is a good idea that helps students to know about the schedule of the festival. It also could be beneficial for them. It is important that we know holding a festival is not just about watching some films but side plans a festivals as workshops and informal interviews could be very fruitful.
Kashani was critical of duration of the workshops and he said: duration of the workshops should be longer. When I knew that my screenwriting workshop is supposed to be only two hours, I asked organizers to make the workshop longer then I could hold double two hours sessions. Interactions of Iranian and foreign students in a workshop was a good happening.
