The Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Arizona is pleased to announce an educational partnership with IMVBox.com. The purpose of the partnership is to give the opportunity to students to learn differently by watching Iranian movies online with English subtitles. Alongside their Persian classes, University of Arizona students will improve their command of the Persian language and sharpen their knowledge of Iranian cultures and cinema by watching Iranian movies on IMVBox.com. Students should contact the Center for Middle Eastern Studies (sbs-cmes@email.arizona.edu) to determine whether they are eligible for one of the limited subscriptions available through this agreement.
Boasting over 1,000 streaming films, IMVBox.com is the largest 'online cinematheque' and only legal platform for Iranian content. By showcasing a large selection of award-winning Iranian movies, including features, documentaries, shorts, and plays, IMVBox aims to present the diversity, depth, and richness of Iranian cinema. IMVBox's core mission is to "paint a true picture" of the Middle East.
