Manuchehr Mohammadi honored by UNESCO for “outstanding contribution to the promotion and preservation of cultural diversity through film,”

Iranian film The Painting Pool’s producer Manuchehr Mohammadi has been honored by UNESCO during a ceremony held in the capital city of Tehran.

The Painting Pool won the UNESCO Award for “outstanding contribution to the promotion and preservation of cultural diversity through film,” the APSA jury had earlier commented on the film at the award ceremony in Brisbane in December 2013.
APSA is endorsed by UNESCO, with which it shares a common goal of fostering cultural diversity and promoting mutual understanding, dialogue and peace.
The annual Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) is an international cultural initiative of the State Government of Queensland, Australia, through Events Queensland, to honor and promote the films, actors, directors, and cultures of Asia-Pacific to a global audience.
