Though information abounds in the digital era, Iranian culture is seldom explored within mainstream media. Founded in 2016 by Mehran Haghighi, a filmmaker and producer whose career spans more than 30 years, Homa Films seeks to fill this knowledge gap by celebrating the history, heritage, and art of Iran and the Persianate world and its people. Our compelling documentaries and films are independently produced and have found homes in educational institutions, museums, research libraries, broadcast, and streaming platforms.
Homa Films takes its name from the mythical bird of Iranian legends and fables, appearing as a recurring motif in Sufi and Diwan poetry. Common among all versions of the myth is that the great bird is said to never alight on the ground, instead living its entire life flying high above the earth and invisible to the human eye. The Homa Films Logo, designed by Sara Natelli Design Boutique
