UK Iranian Film Festival

UKIFF is delighted to announce the inaugural 1st London Iranian Film Festival, commencing on November 19, 2010.

Film festivals that honour Iranian films are held annually across the globe and now the time has finally arrived for an Iranian Film Festival to have a permanent home in the United Kingdom. With a diverse programme celebrating the best of contemporary Iranian films, the festival will showcase some of the finest talents of this rich cinematic culture.

Whilst acclaimed Iranian directors may well be familiar to UK audiences, a new generation of emerging voices remain largely unknown. The intention of the London Iranian Film Festival is to introduce this undiscovered new talent to London’s film enthusiasts, as well as celebrating the work of legendary Iranian filmmakers.

The London Iranian Film Festival is currently seeking submissions with consistent Iranian elements within the following categories:

Feature Film(more than 60 minutes)
Documentary(no longer than 3 hours)
Short Film(no longer than 30 minutes)

The chosen films will be screened at two of London’s most prestigious cinema venues in a weeklong event that will include Q and A’s. The Festival offers a number of travel and accommodation allowances to participating filmmakers.

The 1st London Iranian Film Festival promises to be a landmark event in promoting Iranian film culture within the UK.

We look forward to welcoming you to the occasion.

Bio:Fiction Science, Art and Filmfestival, Vienna

The 1st Bio:Fiction Science, Art & Filmfestival aims at attracting public awareness to synthetic biology and its ramifications for our daily life in the future.


Synthetic biology is the design and construction of new biological systems not found in nature. Synthetic biology aims at creating new forms of life for practical purposes. By applying engineering principles to biology scientists will be able to design life forms much different from breeding or traditional genetic engineering.


We want to encourage filmmakers to share their cinematic visions of a present or future society shaped by synthetic biology. What is your view on a world living with synthetic life forms? Your approach is up to you - the filmmaker, scientists or artist - the entries can be on science, fiction, or science fiction. We welcome regular short film, animation or documentary film. The main criteria is that synthetic biology has to be reflected somehow in the work, but how you do it is up to you.


Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:


Bio:Fiction Award – Short Fiction

Bio:Fiction Award – Documentary Film

Bio:Fiction Award - Animation

Online-Audience Award

Special Award of the Jury

(the prize money in each category will be announced soon)


On you will find more useful and inspiring information on synthetic biology, the entry form and the regulations of the filmfestival.

The nominated films will be presented in public at the festival event in Vienna, Austria, in May 2011. Finally, a Bio:Fiction Award ceremony will build the highlight of the festival.


The deadline for film entries is  the 15th of July 2010

There is no entry fee for submitting films.


Best wishes,

the Bio:Fiction team
