While expressing gratitude towards all of those risking their lives worldwide for our health during the Coronavirus pandemic, based on the recent standard social distancing provisions applied from the World Health Organization (WHO), hereby we announce that the screenings for the 5th edition of the Globe International Silent Film Festival would be cancelled.

With GISFF being held in universities and educational institutions annually, given that our targeted hosting environments are a major place of recent shutdowns for an unknown period of time, the official screenings for the festival are now cancelled for good.
Meanwhile, our judging committees proceed with their usual evaluating procedure. Meaning that the films would be judged, using a secure online platform.

Further news on the procedure will be announced through our website and social media, and directly to our beloved filmmakers.

We appreciate your patience during this unpredictable period and we hope that in the near future, when the outbreak will end and life would get back to normal, we would all gather again to cherish the art of cinema, on big silver screens.

With warm regards,
Nastaran Dorgaraei
Festival Director
