The 3rd annual AGIFF Film Festival Toronto
AGIFF is planned and executed annually under the supervision of Abdol Reza Kahani. Kahani is an Iranian screenwriter and movie director who has achieved several accolades globally and has been recognized as an award-winning filmmaker in many international film festivals.
Kahani left Iran in 2016 under a constant pressure of censorship and after many of his movies were banned from being publicly released.
After a few years of living in France and making films in exile, Kahani moved to Canada and established ARK GATE FILMS, with the goal of continuing his passion in movie production.
AGIFF will include competitions in several categories comprised of Feature Films, Short Films, and Student Films. The winners will be awarded by the festival statuette known as the “Crystal Arkab”.
Future Film market is another important section of the AGIFF festival, meant to be a platform for co-production and networking.
