Iranian cinema has evolved in many ways since Houston’s annual film festival—the longest-running annual MFAH event—was established two decades ago. This year’s selections include comedy, drama, and an acclaimed documentary. The 20th Iranian Film Festival also features screenings at Rice Cinema February 1–2.
