Early life[edit]

Ghahremani was born in Iran, before his family left the country for Pakistan, seeking asylum during the Iranian Revolution.[1]

Noor Iranian Film Festival[edit]

In 2007, Ghahremani and actor Anthony Azizi founded the Noor Iranian Film Festival, with the intent to showcase the culture and heritage of Iranians around the world, through cultivation and promotion of Iranian-American talent in Hollywood. The festival has been held annual every year since 2007, with the exception of a postponement in 2010. It was the first Iranian Film Festival to occur outside of Iran.[2][3]
