The Smuggled Film "This is not a Film"
This is not a Film is Jafar Panahi's new Film, which was smuggled on a USB stick, packed inside a cake and then posted to Paris to be delivered to Cannes Film Festival!
Panahi won the Camera d'Or at the Cannes film festival in 1995 for the film The White Balloon and the Golden Lion at Venice for his 2000 drama The Circle. His other films include Crimson Gold and Offside. Jafar Panahi, a green movement supporter, is sentenced to 6 years prison and banned from directing films for the next 20 years.
