In a wide-ranging press conference held during his first visit to Iran, Oliver Stone expressed appreciation for Iran’s extensive history and recent cinematic accomplishments, criticized American policy toward the Middle East, and voiced his wish that director Jafar Panahi would be allowed to attend the Cannes Film Festival to witness the premiere of his latest film.
Spending a week in Iran as a guest of the Fajr International Film Festival, Stone answered questions from a crowd of approximately 150 Iranian and a few foreign journalists in the Charsou complex in Tehran. He started out by saying that the early part of his visit took him to other Iranian cities, including Isfahan and he was impressed at the hospitality he had been shown and the “warmth” he felt from people of all walks of life. He said he had long been interested in Iran and its 2500-year history and was fortunate that the invitation from Fajr came when his schedule would allow his visit.

There is still hope that Iranian Film Director Jafar Panahi can attend the Cannes film festival.
His new film 'Three Faces' has been selected for the international competition, but it's uncertain if the director who is banned from travelling can come to France to present his film.
At the Fajri International Film Festival in Tehran, Euronews asked Iran's Minister of Culture if it might be possible for Jahar Panahi to attend the festival.
"Mr. Panahi's work can be seen at different festivals in various countries, which makes it possible for him to win different prizes," said Abbas Salehi. "But a final decision about this special question has not been made yet. There is still time to see what will happen."
In 2010, Panahi was arrested by the Iranian authorities and banned from making films. He won the Camera d'Or at Cannes in 1995 for The White Balloon.
Pahahi continues to work, but can't leave Iran and still faces a prison sentence which has not been enforced.
