Hello everyone,

We're writing to see if you guys could do us a favor and recommend The Iran Job to the "Cinema for Peace" competition that's held in Berlin every February. Films get selected based on random peoples recommendations - so basically anyone can recommend a film, and it would be really cool if you could recommend The Iran Job to them.

heres the link - just fill out the "recommend a movie" field and done.

For reference, here's how one supporter phrased it -- by no means do you have to write this much -- just a simple sentence should be totally fine. Just make it your own words - (please don't copy/paste this example - recommendations need to be unique to the person sending it).

Thanks so much,

Till & Sara

Sample recommendation for reference:

THE IRAN JOB - by filmmakers Till Schauder and Sara Nodjoumi, is the quintessential anti-war movie and thus an ideal candidate for CINEMA FOR PEACE. By introducing Iranians to a wider Western audience - and by portraying Iranians in a human light and with far more nuance and accuracy than one typically sees in Western media THE IRAN JOB will give pause to warmongers and hawkish politicians in the West who are bent on attacking Iran. At the same time the film is very clear in its critique of the dismal human rights situation in Iran - especially with regards to women's rights. This is an important film for these times. While it is extremely relevant and timely it also manages to be entertaining, fun, heartwarming and inspiring. The film's limited U.S. release was so successful that it earned The Iran Job a place on various Oscar forecaster lists. The film's success at the box office has also resulted in a wider release in the U.S. in January and theatrical releases in other countries. Please do see this film - and please do select it for Cinema For Peace. You will have a winner at your hands. Also see their website for trailer and more info:
