Sharmill Films presents Iranian documentary This is Not a Film for a limited season at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI).

It will screen every Tuesday at 7pm throughout February from the 31st January.

This 'day in the life' documentary is by Jafar Panahi, who is under current house arrest after a sentence was passed in December 2010, when the Iranian government accused him of opposing the Iranian regime. It was smuggled out of Iran to France on a USB stick inside a cake. The film was later selected for official competition at the Cannes Film Festival. Mr Panahi was also awarded the Carrosse d'Or for courage at Cannes in his absence. Mr Panahi is currently in the process of appealing to Iran's Supreme Court.

This is Not a Film was shot almost entirely inside Mr Panahi's apartment on digital video and an iPhone.

This is Not a Film features Mr Panahi awaiting an appeal on the sentence of a six-year prison term, plus a 20-year ban on film making, talking to the press and travelling abroad. That ruling was upheld by a Tehran appeal court in October 2011.
