2nd Edition
With a rollercoaster year of uncertainty in 2021 and many efforts to have any children festival in place, we are so happy and proud to annouce Iran’s second official partnership with the Science Film Festival – a full digital festival that will be going to the most remote villages of our vast country.

After more than 18 months since the start of the global pandemic, Iran´s education sector takes a very strong hit – which means that children of all ages have fallen big victims to the consequesces and circumtances of Covid-19.

The ministry of education is hoping to counteract the developments and rolling out as many initiatives for children as possible. The main goal is to support their wellbeing and mental health. Similar as to the SFF 2021 the topic of ROSHD´s 51st children film festival is focused on normality and (mental) health for the younger generation.

The nationwide festival will be fully digitalized with a grand opening starting in the Capital Tehran on November 20th , 2021 and touring to every single region until May 2022.
