Under the auspices of the Week of Iranian Culture, the 16th Festival of Iranian Film was also held at the Yugoslav Cinematheque Film Archives.

Isfahan, the hometown of the “Nagme” ensemble, is Iran’s second-largest city and is known as a gem of Iranian and world architecture. For more than a decade and a half, “Nagme” has been known for popularising traditional Iranian music and has performed at festivals throughout the Arab world and also in Turkey, South Africa, Sweden and the Caucasus countries.
