The Short Film Premiere and  Best of Fest will be Screened.

  When you step into the art gallery of Saddleworth Museum, It is like,  you are separated from the Grind of routine daily life. Beyond the frames that each make you the guest of their story, you sit watching the green peace of the trees in the raw next to the canal as if they raised their hands to catch the blue sky. It is a piece of the peace of paradise that is through a bright open window caresses your soul.
You may see countless galleries throughout this much more modern world with more up-to-date technologies, but the only one is Saddleworth Museum, which has a very kind, intimate, eye-catching and relaxing space and atmosphere on its second floor at the Art Gallery.
This is how we decided to host our small cinema in the heart of this calmness. And we will present ten premiere films of the festival along with music, poetry and dance.
Premiere Short Films will be screened on 24th of Aug 2022 at Saddle worth Museum, Art Gallery. Welcome to each one of you.

Starting at 5 pm with Art Dance, short speech, Music, Poetry and 11 international Short Films.

Premiere from 5 pm on 24th of Aug 2022 at Saddleworth Museum Art Gallery will be screened.
Please make sure to reserve your seat and buy your ticket in advanced.

High St, Uppermill, Saddleworth,  OL3 6HS

 Around 5 am on 20th of  Sep, the day of our closing ceremony, I was shocked about news which had been released on the internet, about the death of Zhina Giyan(Mahsa Amini) I was not sure about the situation until I saw videos by Bahman Ghobadi, an Iranian Kurdish award winning filmmaker who asked for support and along with that so many well known artists and Iranian activists on social media and finally the former prince of Iran : Reza Pahlavi who urged people to go on 2 days strike. I could not justify holding our event in such circumstances any more. Immediately I posted on social media: "This event, in solidarity with people of Kurdistan and IRAN, has been cancelled in protest against the policy of the Iranian government in enforcing the compulsory wearing of the Hijab which has led to the murder of Zhina Giyan.

   Due to the alignment with Kurdistan and the children of Iran in the protests and the two-days strike order of former Prince Reza Pahlavi for the murder of a young Kurdish Iranian girl named Zhina Gyan (Mahsa Amini) due to the forced wearing of the hijab by the government-affiliated police force, the closing ceremony of the 9th Sahar international Short Film Festival 2022 has been cancelled".
