Cinema must attach significance to religious values

The prominent cinema figures emphasize a cinema which observes the moral, cultural and Islamic values.

The artists, academic and cinema figures in a recent discussion have highlighted the need for production of movies and programs which contain divine and human and cultural values. 

They also said that the cinema could play a greater role in building and promoting the cultural, religious and moral values.

It is noteworthy that Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic voiced support for cultural and artists following the victory of the Islamic Revolution.

Masjid Jamee'i, the former cultural minister has also recently said that the artists and positive aspects of cinema industry were supported and promoted after the Islamic revolution emerged victorious under the wise leadership of Imam Khomeini in 1979.

He had earlier during a discussion highlighted that music and cinema were not widely welcomed among traditional society and the religious people. 

Imam convinced the society, relevant authorities and public masses to standby the artists in order to promote the positive perspectives of music, art and cinema, the former minister emphasized

 Jamee'i noted that a large number of religious people had not a positive look at cinema industry in the beginning  unless Imam expressed his support and emphasized on highlighting positive perspectives of these branches of art.

Iranian TV channels and cinema produced very good movies and drama serials over the past decades.

Several movies and documentary movies were produced to highlight the events of the Islamic Revolution and occurrences of the imposed war ---holy defense—which was waged against Iran by former Iraqi dictator Saddam and some other colonial powers.

In recent years, Iranian cinema now holds great status and several of the Iranian artists and movies have earned reputation and won international awards at world festival during the recent years.
