iFilm is an English/Arabic/Persian network based in Iran that launched on September 9, 2010. The original purpose of the channel is to present Iranian films and serials to the global audience.

In 2013 iFilm started an addtional channel, broadcasting all content dubbed in English. In July 2013 iFilm and other Iranian channels have been removed from several European and American satellites (amongst others those of Eutelsat and Intelsat), allegedly because of the Iran sanctions, even though an EU spokesman told the channel that these sanctions do not apply to media.[1]


The iFilm Network is a 24-hour TV channel, broadcasting an 8-hour block which is repeated twice, starting at 6:30PM Tehran Time. Programming includes TV series, movies, live quizzes on arts, backstage documentaries on films and ongoing productions, movie and film reviews, short films and documentaries about Iran. It usually shows series that already aired from various IRIB channels, but it has had a successful series production, Yadavari (Remembrance) (2013).
