Its main objective is to raise the level of cinematic culture in Iraq, which has deteriorated due

to the difficult situation Iraq has passed and is still passing via the active promotion, development

and enhancement of cinema to overcome the present cultural crisis. In addition, IIFC aims at

enforcing modern concepts in the work of the Iraqi film industry such as concepts and know

how of production and finance / cultural and cinematic support in all its forms as well as to work

on the details of film distribution based on international models.

The IIFC works on the production, publication and circulation of printed works on cinema to raise public

awareness to the culture of cinema.

prevent filmmakers from becoming tools in media facilities under the obedience of any authority.

centers according to international specifications.
