Siamak Ghahremani

Festival Co-Founder and Director 

Siamak Ghahremani is a prominent leader in the Iranian-American community, particularly in southern and northern California. He is an active and energetic cultural producer with a long list of innovative social, cultural, educational and charitable programs to his credit.

Mr. Ghahremani has hosted sizeable cultural celebrations, including the Persian New Year and Harvest Festivals in southern and northern California, and has also co-hosted the Sunday Morning Show on 670 AM KIRN for seven years, where he had the privilege of interviewing many prominent members of the community. He also started and is the current host of POPCORN, an entertainment show on RadioJavan.com, the premier website for Iranian music and entertainment.

Mr. Ghahremani's success in event production is founded on his solid background in business and finance. His programs are well-planned, organized, and fiscally sound. As an entrepreneur, Rotarian, and past Board Member of the West Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Ghahremani builds strong, working relationships with other prominent community leaders to successfully market his events and generate broad support.

His passion for film and cinema sparked as a child in Iran, when he was first captivated by this story-telling medium. His vision is to bring the Noor Iranian Film Festival to an international audience and to advocate for Iranians both in the US and abroad to share their unique narratives and cinematic talents with the world, thus bridging the gap between Iranian and non-Iranian communities.
