Siavash Gorjestani’s FORCED would be part of the Official Selection of the 6th Festival Internacional de Cine de la No-Violencia Activa – FICNOVA (October 1st to 9th, 2022 / Spain).

The selection criteria of the festival were based on three main aspects: Showing a denunciation of a situation of violence or discrimination; providing a non-violent solution or a positive transfer of the situation; and opening up the future as an inspiring example beyond the culture itself.

FORCED was premiered in the Eastern Vista section at FIFF – Fajr international Film Festival 2021 – an accredited non-specialized competitive film festival which does not exist anymore as an independent event with international recognition.
