A short Look at the International Section of Imam Reza (PBUH) International Festival
The Imam Reza (PBUH) International Festival is held at the occasion of the prosperous birth anniversary of the eighth shining star of Imamat and Vilayat ]Devine Leadership[ Imam Reza (PBUH) and her ladyship, the benevolent of the Ahl al-Bayt, Fatimah Masoomeh (S.A.A.), and for honoring Hazrat Shah Cheragh (PBUH), from the first till the eleventh of Dhu al-Qidah, in a celebration named the Ten Days of Keramat ]Dignity[. Currently, this festival is held in thirty one Iranian provinces nationally and in seventy five countries around the world. First, this festival started with the approval of the General Cultural Council of Khorasan Razavi with eight programs at the holy city of Mashhad. In the second year, it continued to be held in four provinces of the country and the cities of Qom, Shiraz, Yazd and the holy city of Mashhad, because of their spiritual connection: they were all stops of Imam Reza (PBUH) in his imigration path. And in the third year, twenty provinces of the country each defined a program in the festival and joined the festival. In the fourth year thirty one provinces submitted their thematic programs related to the festival and got their plans approved at the Public Cultural Councils of each province, in fact during the fourth year all provinces of Iran were members of the festival and the festival coverage included the whole country. Given that there were countless requests for internationalizing the festival, in the fifth year the "Imam Reza (PBUH) Cultural & Artistic Festival" admitted an international perspective and changed its title to "Imam Reza (PBUH) International Festival". The Islamic Culture and Relations Organization became the responsible trusteeship of the international section of this festival with various approaches such as science and research, culture, art, journalism and also the cyberspace.  And institutions such as Ahl al-Bayt (PBUH) World Assembly, Al-Mustafa Al-Aliamiye Association and more than seventeen other organizations who are responsible for cultural activities in foreign countries or whose capacities could be used for cultural activities outside the country participated in the international section of the festival. By the Power and Concern of God, and with the support and empathy of the lovers of his holiness Imam Reza (PBUH), at the celebration of his birth anniversary, scientific, research, cultural and artistic activities are performed at the framework of Razavi Movie Festivals, Razavi Art Exhibitions, Scientific Conferences, and programs about spiritual values during the Ten Days of Keramat celebration from the first till the eleventh of Dhu al-Qidah all around the world. Currently, we are celebrating the twelfth anniversary of this festival and seven years have passed since the International section of this holly and spiritual festival has started working; many guests from different countries have been privileged to make the pilgrimage to visit Imam Reza (PBUH) at the holy city of Mashhad, many outstanding scientific and cultural figures, who had offered invaluable services to the field of Razavi culture and knowledge, had been honored in the closing ceremonies of Imam Reza (PBUH) International Festival at  the holy city of Mashhad as the servants of the Razavi Culture.
