Iranian director Vahid Vakilifar's screen production is slated to vie at the 2012 edition of Thessaloniki International Film Festival in Greece, PressTV reported.
Vakilifar's film Tabour is to represent Iran at the 53th Greek international film festival that will be held in the capital city of Athens.
The movie was presented at the 'A Window on Asian Cinema' section of the 2012 Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) in South Korea.
Vakilifar's second feature-length was also screened at the Festival du nouveau cinéma, which was recently held in Montreal, Canada, from October 2 to 14.
Born in 1981, Vahid Vakilifar graduated in film directing from Iran's Soureh University and worked as an assistant director on several features before starting his filmmaking career.
He has been awarded in several international events particularly for his first feature-length production Geshe.
This year's Thessaloniki festival is scheduled to host distinguished guests, tributes, master classes and round table discussions.
The 53th Thessaloniki International Film Festival is scheduled to be held from November 2-11.
