Getting a support by an Iranian scenario writer, Anime “Junod” was shown as a special screening on February 3, 2014 at “Fajr International Film Festival” which is the largest film festival in Iran. To hold “Iranian Film Festival” in Hiroshima around August 6 was suggested to MOCT. Inviting Iranian film directors every summer, “Hiroshima-Iran Love & Peace Film Festival” is held to give courage and hope which are necessary to live for not only Hiroshima A-bomb and Iranian Chemical Weapon survivors in the past tragedy, and also all the people.
