Iranian director to judge at Sri Lanka Filmfest jury panel

The 2013 edition of SAARC International Film Festival in Sri Lanka has selected Iranian filmmaker Abbas Rafei to attend this year’s jury panel.

Rafei has been invited to judge at the festival along with some other jurors from Russia and Singapore.

The participated films are to compete in different categories including feature, short and documentary films.

The filmmakers and cineastes are also slated to attend a workshop that will be held on the sideline of the event.

The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) was established by India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Maldives in 1985, while later, Afghanistan joined the organization in 2007.

The SAARC Film Festival has become forum for people interaction, as well as understanding and savoring of culture through the medium of cinema.

This year’s festival is scheduled to take place from May 26 to 31 at the National Film Corporation Cinema Hall in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
