* A story of Hijazifar’s experiences that helped the festival
Then it was the turn of the secretary of the 19th Festival of Tehran-Mubarak Puppet Show to come on stage to say his words.
Hadi Hejazifar thanked the companies accompanying the festival and the directors of the Ministry and the Performing Arts Association, saying: “I am also grateful to the sponsors who gave us the opportunity to talk about puppets and theater and supported us; “I think it’s the first time in a drama festival that at least half of the expenses were financed by private companies, and I hope this trend will continue for the next works.”
He added: “I would like to thank the Vice-Chancellor of Art and the General Directorate of Performing Arts of Irshad. I used to say any problem out loud, but everything was really good. Every day, I thought that the work would be ruined, but the support of friends always helped to advance the goals.”
He continued: “I did my best to raise the demand level of the puppet theater community, we were more than satisfied and satisfied; I am happy that three days before the closing, all expenses were settled, the money was paid, we hosted two thousand people and we had forty people from the city and managers as guests in Tehran.”
Hijazi Far explained, pointing out that we only gave financial aid to two foreign groups: “The strangest thing I did was to provide a van for executive groups. “I remember the hard days when I was looking for a van to move my stuff after performing at the festival.”
He added: “I must say about the way of judging, the sections were judged by the directors of the same section, anyway, in each section, each director watched thirteen works and we became friends, thirty percent of the team members were hidden and semi-hidden judges, which were announced in the 95 candidates. We had a matching percentage, which means that the directors and the jury team had the same opinion and the directors acted fairly.
He further added: “We tried to be completely transparent; In three days, the secret and public arbitration coefficients will be available to anyone who wants. We live by working and don’t let this competitive atmosphere depress you, Rubika is set to show twenty selected shows of the festival on its platform for one year by paying a financial contribution to the groups. We have also promised to support public performances and it is set “Four works should be performed in the same city theater.”
“I swear I love you all and I was here with all my heart, if I’ve been wrong forgive us all,” he said. When the festival is over, it will be my last night as a secretary, but I will proudly accept executive ideas and I will be by your side as a consultant, assistant, and market manager; I thank you all.”
In the following, after the clip of the deceased in the puppet show arena, the six-year birthday party of Abtin Behbahani, the son of Bahram Behbahani, and the memory of Mehrnoosh Shariati, a young puppet show artist who died in 1400 due to corona disease, was held.
