Among the films screening are Mohsen Makhmalbaf’s “The Gardener,” Marjane Setrapi and Vincent Paronnaud’s “Chicken With Plums” and 2013 Cinefondation Award winner “Needle.” Jury members include actor-producer Marshall Manesh, actor-director-producer Dennis Haysbert and Iranian cinematographer Farajallah Heidari.
