Our first SPOTLIGHT this year is on the country of Iran. Talent does not discriminate and through the submission process, we have discovered a vein of gifted and talented filmmakers coming out of Iran. The Islamic Republic of Iran has long been shrouded in propaganda and political rhetoric. At ENE we aim to showcase a different side of Iran. One were politics and propaganda have no foothold. This year we are honored to showcase the works of these young and visionary Iranian filmmakers and to celebrate their courage and spirit at our multi-cultural event. - ENE.
