We are less than a week away From the start of this year's Fajr Film Festival; A Festival where the margins of the decisions of its new directors and the shadow of important absent films weigh on all aspects, but there are some curious names among the artists present in this period that make us still hope for the 40th dawn. Undoubtedly, the biggest absentee of this year's Fajr Festival is the film "Killer and Savage" directed by Hamid Nematullah. Last year, Fajr Festival officials refused to screen the film due to some problems that were never explained in a clear and convincing manner. This year, we hoped that the killer and savage would be screened for the selection committee of the 40th Fajr Film Festival and that we would see the film compete for the Crystal Simorghs, but again, this did not happen so that cinema lovers would have to wait longer to watch Nematullah's sixth film.
In the long list of the most important absentees of this year's Fajr Festival, the names of Saeed Roustaei and Hooman Sidi can also be seen. The village that shone for the first time at the 34th Fajr Film Festival with the film "Ever and a Day" and attracted a lot of cinema lovers with its film "Metri Shishoonim" has not brought its new film to the Fajr Film Festival this year. A villager announced a few days ago that the production process of "Leila Brothers" is still ongoing and that the film has not applied for the festival. As it turns out, the process of compiling or filming Hooman Sidi's new film titled "World War III" and starring Mohsen Tanabandeh, Neda Jabraili, Mahsa Hejazi, Navid Nosrati, Lotfollah Seifi and Hatem Mashmoli has not been completed until World War III, when one of the absentees Fajr Festival should be forty. But the most interesting absentee of this year's Fajr Festival is the film "Night, Interior, Wall" directed by Vahid Jalilvand; Because according to some news, the shooting of this film ended a few months ago and we even expected to watch it at the 30th Fajr Festival!
Apart From the big absentees of the 40th festival, in the list of films published in the Simorgh Soda is the name of several curious, interesting and interesting films by famous directors such as Reza Mirkarimi, Masoud Kimiaei and Behrouz Shoaib. Also, according to the names of the directors, it can be said that in the upcoming festival, we will see the presence of filmmakers From three different generations with different types of views, which is a positive point.
