The 2nd international conference on Hollywoodism and Cinema is set to kick off during a ceremony at Iran's Presidential Office in the capital city of Tehran.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Mohammad Hosseini and his deputy in cinematic affairs Javad Shamaghdari will attend the opening ceremony along with a number of cinematic scholars and officials on February 2.

About 48 foreign scholars from France, the US, Canada, Belgium, Greece, Spain, Tunisia, Italy, Egypt, Russia, Lebanon, Azerbaijan, Palestine and the UK will take part in the event.

The conference is scheduled to be held as a sideline program of the 2012 Fajr International Film Festival.

The event will discuss five principle topics namely 'Narration in Hollywood,' 'Role of Cinema in the World Awakening,' 'The Role of Hollywoodism and Human Decadence,' 'Portrait of Future in Hollywood' and 'Hollywoodism and Zionism.'

Considering the anti-capitalist movements in the US and Europe, a number of other related subjects will also be explored during the conference.

Since the recent uprisings in US and European cities and their impressive messages can be adapted into films, the conference will review other related subjects such as 'Hollywood and Holocaust,' 'Palestine on the Line of Fire,' 'Hollywood and Apocalypse,' 'Hollywood,' and 'Darwinism and Liberalism.'

The first Hollywoodism and Cinema conference was held last year covering a variety of subjects such as War, Terrorism and Hollywood, Hollywood and Satanism and American Life Style in Hollywood.

This year's conference will be held from February 1 to 11, 2012.
