TEHRAN – The 37th Fajr International Film Festival plans to help victims of Iran’s recent floods, the organizers have announced.

All the box office receipts will be donated to Iran’s Red Crescent in a program named “We Stay with You”.

The festival as the ambassador of kindness in the field of natural disasters will continue collaboration with the Red Crescent.

The organizers also plan to select and screen foreign films that focus on natural disasters in the next editions of the event in order to attract wide attention from across the world to natural disasters and incidents.
