Women Fans Offside in Iran

Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi tricked Iran's Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance and shot guerilla-style to produce Offside, a film about Iranian women's efforts to be allowed in the stadiums to support their teams. And, apparently, it's a comedy! And more here.

Here's hoping P-Town's International Film Festival sees fit to bring this one to next year's screens.
