The Iranian Film Festival Australia (IFFA) is thrilled to announce Reza Mirkarimi’s acclaimed, multi-award-winning film, Castle of Dreams as the opening night film of this year’s Festival, which screens November 14 -20 exclusively at Luna Leederville.

After winning the Best Screenplay and Music awards at Iran’s National Academy Awards, Castle of Dreams went on to scoop the Golden Goblet prize for Best Film, the Best Director prize for Reza Mirkarimi and a shared Best Actor Award for Hamed Behdad at the prestigious Shanghai Film Festival earlier this year.

A drama about family, separation and keeping one’s promises by one of Iran’s finest filmmakers, Castle of Dreams is described by The Hollywood Reporter as “a subtly written and sensitively directed psychological drama that nimbly teases out the meaning of fatherhood and the responsibility it entails.”

Tickets $30  now on sale and online.
