TEHRAN (IFILM)-Attempting to gain a larger share in the world film market, the Cinema Organization of Iran (COI) has revealed a comprehensive plan.
The COI Comprehensive Plan for International Affairs was introduced during a press release on Tuesday.
The plan that is composed of 22 articles has been created by the COI High International Council.
A number of the articles stress the need for turning Iran into a regional hub where Iranian and foreign distributors and film studios can easily buy and sell their latest offerings.
Some others point to numerous short-term and mid-term international academic courses that shall be organized, and international distributors of Iranian films that shall be provided with support from Iran.
According to the plan, Iran also intends to expand relations with domestic and international film unions and guilds.
Iranian cinema industry has seen a huge qualitative and quantitative boost during the past one or two decades. A large number of Iranian productions take part at several international film events across the globe annually and grab a relatively great portion of the offered awards and prizes here and there.
