Reza Badiyi Achievement Award

In 2012 Noor Iranian Film Festival organizers unanimously voted to change the name of the Noor Film Festival Achievement Award to the "Reza Badiyi Achievement Award" in honor of the award's first recipient who passed away in 2011.

Mr. Badiyi's career spanned more than 60 years, during which time he contributed greatly to both Iranian and American television. He was a hardworking, talented professional as well as a kind, inspiring man whose legacy lives on in his large body of work, in the lives he touched, and in the award that is now named after him.
