Niloofar Mohebbi has also composed film scores. Her first such experience was for the film “Masou” directed by Asghar Mohebbi, which was recorded in the winter of 2016.
Her second experience composed film score is for the short film “ inner self ” directed by Mohammad Hormozi which was recorded in the Fall of 2018.
Her first official album is entitled az Nahaan ta Bikaraan (from cocert to infinity ) which is based on a violin solo composed and arranged by herself. This album has an electro- pop aura which is very different from her musical education and contradicts the musical genre in which she has performed throughout her musical career. As such, this is a novel experience and a new discovery for her. She released her first official music video in Nov 2016 –with the official permission of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance– which was unprecedented in the history of Iranian music both in terms of its composition and arrangement in the electro-pop genre and its music video depicting a woman soloist and connoting women’s independence.
