TEHRAN -- The secretary of the 13th Resistance International Film Festival, an Iranian festival that screens movies on people’s movements against world arrogance, has said that after World War II, the U.S. government has supported the Hollywood companies producing movies, which are heavily biased towards the government.

“After World War II, the U.S. government began to support the movies, in which fighting against Communism and socialism was the main subject,” Mohammad Khazaei told the Persian Service of MNA on Tuesday.

“The policy was pursued until the fall of the Soviet Union and afterwards, struggling against Islam was adopted as a new policy, because they witnessed the development of Islam in the world especially in Europe, and they were opposed to the development of Islam,” he added.

Khazaei said that the U.S. government has used some incentive measures to convince Hollywood companies to produce films against Islam.

For example, the U.S. would eliminate taxes for Hollywood companies if they produce films against Islam and Iran, he added.

“The U.S. commissions some companies and studios in Hollywood to make films against Iran under the supervision of its Department of Defense and the Pentagon, and in addition, the government eliminates taxes for the companies,” he stated.

He said that Zack Snyder’s historical drama “300” and Ben Affleck’s Iran hostage drama “Argo” fall into this category.

“Unfortunately, I would say that we have done little to neutralize their calculated attempts and best-laid plans,” Khazaei lamented.

The 13th Resistance International Film Festival will be held in Tehran, Moscow and several other cities worldwide during October.
