The Iranian actor, screenwriter, and director Payman Maadi is in Brisbane to launch his new film Snow on Pines as part of the Iranian Film Festival.

Mr Maadi is best known for his leading role in the Oscar-winning film, The Separation.

The success of that film has opened many doors, but he told RN Drive that getting his films shown in Iran is still a challenge.
