Founded in 2011, the Persian International Film Festival is a one-of-a-kind festival that showcases films by Persian-speaking filmmakers around the world. Through screenings, master classes and cultural events, it celebrates this rich cinematic culture with Australian communities. The Festival also aims to be a leader in shifting views and misconceptions in Australia by creating spaces for new and alternative voices of Persian Australians, and by being a forum for dialogue between and amongst diverse communities.

A number of awards are presented during the Persian International Film Festival, reflecting our commitment to quality cinema. A jury of international and Australian filmmakers and industry professionals will select one film to receive the festival’s Golden Gazelle Award in the following categories:

– Best Feature Film
– Best Short Film
– Best Documentary
