“Tasvir Aftab” Institute of Art and Culture, manages many other cultural business sides of the Aftabnet Communication Group; since art and culture has always been a passion for both of ACG co-founders, Reza Haddad and Maziyar Habibiniya who have cultural and artistic academic backgrounds themselves. The institute derived for that passion; to promote and deepen the culture among the different communities and to share and present intellectual insights to the society. This entity has several other roots; each to pursue a certain interest of the founders. Here are to name a few:
- Aftabnet Magazine: An intellectual art and cultural monthly magazine which is being published since August 2012; covering stories and articles on social, music, theater, cinema, and visual arts.
- Aftab Theater Company: As one of the very few private theater companies in Iran, this non-profit foundation is motivated to develop creative, research and educational activities in performing and dramatic arts in both national and international levels. The Aftab Theater Company has already produced several big production plays, had performed in different Asian, European and African countries and received many valuable recognitions.
- Aftab Movie Production: Since 2014 Tasvir Aftab Institute of Art and Culture, embraced an opportunity to open arms towards another artistic line; Cinema. Collaborating with the director and good colleague Kaveh Ebrahimpour in producing of the movie “Yahya Didn’t Kept Quite” was the first and a wonderful experience.
- Aftabnetdaily website: Is an online media parallel to the Aftabnet Magazine which more over of re-publishing the magazine’s articles and profiles, has more of a multimedia approach and cover the artistic and cultural news and events on a daily basis.
