The nation of Iran has made efforts to revise policy in hopes of preserving the animation field in the country and harnessing its “unique potentials.” The Islamic Republic News Agency reveals that in the last three months fourteen animated films have begun production that “focus on various religious, literary and routine issues.” The Center for the Development of Documentary and Experimental Cinema’s Cultural Department has been assigned the task to protect the individuality of the art form while putting it to use in promoting Islamic heritage.
