For this month’s Pelan, plan is adding new theme to its routine movie screening by organizing first animation night. This is an exciting ride with a collection of 10 short animations made by young talented artists who live and work in Iran. An eye opening project as it contains a range of funny, musical, colorful artworks as well as black and white, sharp and heart wrenching stories. Whatever they are, we are sure that these honest and sometimes very personal stories will tickles your senses.

“PELAN" is a nonprofit and nonpartisan project, organized by a group of students and graduates of "Simon Fraser University (SFU)" in Vancouver. “PELAN" has been initially designed for screening the contemporary documentaries and short films about Iranian people made by independent Iranian/non-Iranian directors. While these movies may have been banned in Iran, they have been presented in international film festivals all around the world. So, we believe this is a great opportunity for Iranian living in Vancouver to watch these artworks on a bigger scale. “PELAN" was established in 2013 and it has been happening since then and so far we have screened several documentaries from Iranian filmmakers who work inside and outside of Iran. We've also been organizing online Q&A sessions with the directors/producers at the end of the screenings.
