The event was attended by Culture Minister Ali Jannati and veteran cineastes, including director Reza Mirkarimi, actors Fatemeh Motamed Aria and director Shahram Mokri. Addressing the gathering, Jannati said "I am happy to attend the National Cinema Day gala for the third time." He added that the incumbent government intends to support the cinema industry and the production of films, adding that sometimes films cannot be screened due to a number of problems.
