Four feature-length films as well as a number of short films from Iran are competing in the Fourth Tiburon International Film Festival (TIFF), which began on March 11 in the northern California town.


Mania Akbari's "20 Fingers", Ahmadreza Darvish's "Duel", Esmaeil Barari's "Dead Heat Under the Shrubs", and Amir-Shahab Razavian’s "Tehran at 7 a.m." are the feature-length films from Iran vying for prizes at TIFF.

A total of 270 films from 60 countries are being screened at the festival, which will continue until March 17.

This year's festival is paying tribute to Orson Welles, Sam Peckinpah, Malcolm McDowell, and a number motion picture stuntmen.

TIFF seeks to provide a greater understanding of the world and its many cultures through the artistic medium of film, and through the top quality films from around the world that would not be accessible without an event of this nature. The festival wishes to enhance tolerance between people of all backgrounds.
