Iran Cinema Organization appeals for the reinstatement of National Cinema Day on the country’s official calendar.

In line with changes that usually come in the wake of the rise to power of a new government, Chairman of Iran Cinema Organization Hojatollah Ayubi has sent a letter to the secretary of the Public Culture Council which reads: “In light of the fact that the Supreme Leader has designated this year [which started on March 21, 2014] as the year of economy and culture, Iran Cinema Organization is appealing for the reinstatement of National Cinema Day on the country’s official calendar.” September 12th used to be called National Cinema Day on the official calendar, but two years ago the Public Culture Council removed it from the calendar and instead put it on an index, citing the fact that there are “too many occasions” on the official calendar of the country.
