ASA international humanitarian film festival

The world is eternal friendship

Living in tranquility has been a long lasting wish of human being. Human beings have always been in quest of the tranquility which is associated with security and provides the people of society with the opportunity to sit and contemplate and also the opportunity to try to tread a path in which one may not move forward except by having faith. When this tranquility is gone prosperity comes to an end and there remains nothing in the memory of captured pictures but ruin and destruction which manifest their presence as bitter but decisive; hence, the crucial necessity of inviting people to assume fellow feeling and sympathy and the endeavor towards achieving it in our contemporary world. 

The celebration of this very nobility of human character was the motivation which made the ASA team found and plan to hold a film festival on humanitarian issure and its appreciation.

This International film festival is named “ASA” and the UN office for the coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) cooperated with ASA team to stage it in Iran and switzerlan. And this year the Weimar city will cooprate with the ASA to stage it in Germany, September 28th to October 2ed, 2018 

Because of its humanitarian theme and the company of great cinematic centers and internatonal humanitarian organizations, ASA .enjoys a proper international oppreciation 

“ASA” stands for peace and tranquility 

(“Asayesh” in Persian)
