Massoud Farassati (also spelled Farasati or Ferasati, Persian: مسعود فراستی) is an Iranian film critic. He used to regularly appear in the Iranian State Television programme Haft, hosted by Fereydoun Jeyrani and later by Behrouz Afkhami. He has published anthologies of writings about such classical filmmakers as Charlie Chaplin, John Ford, Alfred Hitchcock, Federico Fellini, Akira Kurosawa and Ingmar Bergman in Persian.
According to Saeed Kamali Dehghan of The Guardian, his views are close to those of the Iranian government. He is a harshly dismissive of Abbas Kiarostami's works. Farassati uses the terms Siahnamayi and Festival Cinema (Persian: سینمای جشنوارهای) to describe films he deems "exotic" to foreign audience and of only seeking to win awards in the West.
