Info:
The International Institute of Independent Thinkers and Artists (New Horizon) is a Tehran-based NGO which organized several International Conferences in Iran including Hollywoodism (3 editions), New Horizon (5 editions) and International conference on “Prophet, Cinema & World Literature”. Many great western personalities came to Iran in the frame of these conferences or lecture tours in Iranian universities across the country;

The conferences host American and European high-ranking anti-Zionist and anti-Imperialist academics, political & military figures, media analysts, writers, activists, singers, actors, movie critics & filmmakers to discuss different aspects of the world as they relate to human ideals on one hand and the untold realities of the globe on the other;

New Horizon Organization hosts international conferences that serve as a platform for the IRGC-QF to recruit and collect intelligence from attendees. Conference organizers have served as conduits for contact between the IRGC-QF and U.S. persons. Several New Horizon Organization-sponsored conferences have been held in the past few years in Iraq and Iran, where recruitment and collection efforts were made. These anti-Western conferences propagate anti-Semitism and conspiracy theories, including Holocaust denial;

Gholamreza Montazami, New Horizon Organization’s founder and Executive Director, and Hamed Ghashghavi, New Horizon Organization’s Secretary for International Affairs, have collaborated with IRGC circles to organize regime-sponsored New Horizon Conferences.
