The Roshan Cultural Heritage Institute has made it possible (through a grant to NETPAC/USA-Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema/USA – and AsiaPacific Films) for Boston University to stream the films in the “Understanding Persian Culture Through Film” project.
This grant made it possible to add films that examine the theme “Love and Devotion in Persian Culture as Seen through Film.” You can see the new films, with introductions by Persian film scholars and experts her: http://www.asiapacificfilms.net/persianfilms/category/love-and-devotion/
You can read about the project, including an important message from Dr. Elahe Mir-Djalali Omidyar, by exploring the links found on the home page of the project. Your faculty and students can stream the free films by clicking on your portal here using the password ‘bostonu’: http://www.asiapacificfilms.net/persianfilms/educational-resources/roshan-institute-educational-programs/
This will allow faculty and students to access all 32 movies for free.
The streaming of 32 films for all students and faculty at Boston University remains a gift, thanks to a grant from the Roshan Cultural Heritage Institute until June 30, 2013.
