Today’s Strasburg Film Festival Feature is an excellent 12 minute short from Iran called red wheat fields.

It’s really hard to explain without providing the always hated spoilers, so we’ll offer up what was submitted to us. “Father and his child are living in a village in which the war is taking place. One day a pilot lands in the village with a paratroop.”

The director, Asad Bahreini, graduated from the School of Filmmaking in Iran in the field of directing and screenwriting.   Red wheat is his first short film.

You can purchase passes now at or you can wait till the schedule is released, which will be in early September and then you can determine if you’d want to enjoy the best of over 5,500 submitted films. Prices will range:
– $30 for the full three days
– $10 dollars for one day
– $4 for one session

It’s best that you follow us on one of our social media channels so you don’t miss as we feature a new film each day leading up to the festival, which is November 9-11.
