Addressing a press conference in the 36th edition of Fajr International Film Festival (FIFF), Stone said: ‘Since my first visit to Iran, I have traveled to Isfahan and Kahshan in central Iran and I have encountered many smiles in the streets and even the hotels.”

He also appreciated the FIFF organizers, adding that he has come to Iran to attend the festival and watch different films.
