TEHRAN -- The three time Oscar-winning Italian cinematographer Vittorio Storaro will hold a workshop at the 32nd Fajr International Film Festival in February, organizers announced on Sunday.
 
The workshop is scheduled for February 2, one day after the opening ceremony of the festival, which is Iran’s most important event in the motion picture industry.
 
Only members of the Iranian House of Cinema are allowed to attend the workshop.
 
In 2003, a survey conducted by the International Cinematographers Guild considered Storaro as one of history’s ten most influential cinematographers.
 
Storaro, 74, has collaborated with many important directors including Bernardo Bertolucci, Francis Ford Coppola and Warren Beatty.
 
He won his first Oscar for the American film “Apocalypse Now”, directed by Francis Ford Coppola in 1979. He has also received Oscars for “Reds” in 1981 and “The Last Emperor” in 1987. In addition, he earned an Oscar nomination for his collaboration in “Dick Tracy” in 1990.
 
The Fajr film festival will be held in Tehran from February 1 to 11.
