After more than a week in captivity in Ward 209 of the Evin Prison, Panahi was finally allowed to call his family. On March 17, 2010 Rasoulof and Pourmoussa were released. The next day, Panahi was allowed to have visitors, including his family and lawyer. On April 14, 2010, Iran's Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance said that Panahi was arrested because he "was making a film against the regime and it was about the events that followed the [2009] election." On May 25, 2010 Panahi was finally released on a $200,000 bail.

In February 2010 he was denied permission to leave Iran to participate in the panel discussion on 'Iranian Cinema: Present and Future. Expectations inside and outside of Iran' during the World Cinema Fund Day at the 60th Berlinale.

Symbolic guest of honor of Cannes Film Festival in 2010.

On December 20, 2010, Panahi was sentenced by the Revolutionary Court to six years in prison and barred for the next twenty years from film-making, political activity, traveling or giving interviews. Panahi's colleague Mohammad Rasoulof was also sentenced to six years in prison.
