What do you want to know about Iran?
With the help of a Rising Voices microgrant, Shaghayegh Azimi will explain to Iranian filmmakers how they can use videoblogs to distribute their short films and documentaries to an international audience. Once the videos are available online, Azimi will also see to it that they are sub-titled and distributed widely via popular video-sharing networks.
Shaghayegh Azimi is an Iranian-American reporter and documentary filmmaker. Born in the United States, she grew up an equal amount of time in both the United States and Iran and says she spent a good deal of her formative years defending each of her two homes to the residents of the other. The major difference, she notes, is that while nearly all Iranians are informed about the latest cultural and political developments in the United States, many Americans can’t even locate Iran on a map.
