TEHRAN (FNA) - Iran and Indonesia will broaden cooperation in cinema and television, Head of Farabi Cinema Foundation Alireza Tabesh and a delegation from the Indonesian state TV agreed in a meeting in Tehran.
During the meeting between Tabesh and the Indonesian delegation, which took place on the sidelines of the 37th Fajr International Film Festival, the two sides discussed ways to air more Iranian movies on national Indonesian TV channels, as well as co-produce feature movies.
Tabesh said, "Our main focus is on international co-production of movies. We made movies that garnered awards in prestigious international film festivals. Iran and Indonesia have many cultural and religious commonalities. There are great ideas to produce movies together. There are markets for such movies.”
"Iranian movies do well at the Indonesian box office. This includes TV serials. Showing Iranian movies could help strengthen our artistic and cultural ties. We are ready to work with our Indonesian counterparts to co-produce movies and TV serials for children. We also extend an invitation to Indonesian filmmakers to take part in the upcoming International Children Film Festival in Isfahan,” the Iranian official added.
