Seyr Festival is Tehran’s International Festival of Screen-Movement and Media Arts. It embraces works that explore the connection between movement and media arts. Seyr provides a platform in which participants are exposed to cutting edge films and media works, encouraged to find their own voice in the field and be heard.
The festival organizes film screening programs, installations, workshops and supports local artists in the process of making their works. Seyr also tries to introduce this field to people who are eager to see creative, experimental and new works.
Seyr means "Voyage" in Persian literature.
