Tehran (ISNA) – The delegation of the representative of Iranian cinema to the Oscar selected Iranian film “Sun Children” directed by Majid Majidi as the representative of Iran to be introduced to the 2021 Academy Awards.

The secretary and spokesman for the delegation of the representative of Iranian cinema to the 2021 Academy Awards, Raed Faridzadeh said on Sunday, “Due to the change in the rules of the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film and the change in the deadline for participating in this period due to Covid-19 virus outbreak, the work of this committee began with reviewing 90 screened Iranian films and then the selection committee came up with a list of 12 films”.
