    Alireza Khatami


    For me cinema is a poetic justice to a cruel world.

    Alireza Khatami (1980, Iran) had worked in the Film and Advertising Industry for four years prior to moving to Malaysia where he got a degree in Creative Multimedia and later worked as a Visual Effects Supervisor. He was selected as one of the Dean’s Fellows for Savannah College of Art & Design, thus in 2010 he moved to America to obtain a degree of Master of Fine Arts in Film Production. His short films, scripts and installations have been showcased and awarded in several countries around the globe including France, Germany, Spain, Italy, USA, Brazil, Philippines and many more. In 2012 he was selected for Cinefondation Residency of Cannes Film Festival to develop his first feature film.
