TEHRAN – The acclaimed Iranian director Asghar Farhadi is presiding over the international jury of the 33rd Istanbul Film Festival, which opened in the Turkish city on Saturday.
 
The U.S. actress Defne Halman, French film screenwriter Philippe Le Guay, Edinburgh International Film Festival former director Lynda Myles, and the Romanian musician Razvan Radulescu are the members of the jury.
 
The 16-day festival will be presenting over 200 films in 20 sections.
 
Eleven films are vying for Golden Tulip awards in the international section and ten movies are competing in the national section. 
 
Farhadi and the Romanian filmmaker Marin Karmitz are scheduled to hold master classes on the sidelines of the festival.
 
Farhadi’s latest movie “The Past” brought its French star Bérénice Bejo the Palme d’Or for best actress at the 66th annual Cannes Film Festival in 2013.
 
Farhadi’s “A Separation” won an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a French César for best foreign language film earlier in 2012 as well as Berlin’s Golden Bear in 2011.
