Iran to launch nonstop movie channel for Arabic speakers

TEHRAN, May 10 (MNA) -- Iran’s English-language news channel Press TV will establish a non-stop Arabic TV channel to show films and series in the near future.

“The primary budget has been prepared and now we are collecting films and TV series in Persian for dubbing into Arabic,” Press TV Managing Director Mohammad Sarafraz said.


He went on to say that the exact date of the inauguration has not yet been fixed since the final budget has not been presented.


“The channel will not produce very many films or TV series. We are selecting appropriate programs for dubbing and there will be also film review sessions which will be attended by film experts and critics,” he said.


Sarafraz went on to say that Press TV tries its best to reveal a true picture of the West by producing well-researched and thought-provoking documentaries about it.


“No specific budget is dedicated to film production at the Press TV but we are trying to increase it in the near future,” he said.


He went on to say that sometimes, documentaries have greater impact than feature films and they can more effectively transfer concepts to the audience.


Press TV is an English language international television news channel which is funded by the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) in Tehran in 2007. Press TV broadcasts can be received in the United States from satellite 97.0W, Galaxy 25.
