The Fajr International Film Festival (Persian: جشنواره بین‌المللی فیلم فجر‎) and Fajr Film Festival (little: FIFF; Persian: جشنواره فیلم فجر‎) are Iran's annual film festivals, held every February and April in Tehran, Iran. The festival, started in 1982, is under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance in Iran. It takes place every year on the anniversary of the Iranian revolution. There were 90 feature films submitted for the 29th edition of the festival in 2011.[1] The festival has been promoted both locally and abroad through television, radio and webinars with previous speakers coming from the United States, United Kingdom and Germany.

Organizations contributing to the event include the Farabi Cinema Foundation, Iran film foundation, Press TV, HispanTV and Iran's multi-lingual film channel IFilm (TV channel). From 2015 on, the festival has been separated into a national festival in February and an international one in April, with the national one being notable for premieres of the most important domestic movies.
