Since moving to Paris, she has worked with directors including Roland Joffe, Hiner Saleem and Marjane Satrapi. She has also been a member of the international jury at the 63rd Locarno Film Festival.


The movie The Patience Stone (2012), directed by Atiq Rahimi from his novel, has received a majority of positive reviews upon its release. One of her upcoming movies is Rumi's Kimia. Still in development, it is directed by Dariush Mehrjui and is based on the novel "Kimia Khatoon", by Saideh Ghods. Golshifteh also starred in a 2012 César Award's video in the Most Promising Actors category.

In 2016, Golshifteh played Anna Karenina on stage in Paris and received great reviews from all the French press. In 2017, Golshifteh appeared in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales with Johnny Depp.


In January 2012, it was reported that Golshifteh would not be welcome in her homeland after posing nude in the French Madame Figaro. Britain's Daily Telegraph reported that government officials told Golshifteh that "Iran does not need actors or artists like you. You may offer your artistic services somewhere else." A picture from the shoot on her Facebook page initiated a lively debate about her behavior. She also appeared topless in a short black-and-white film by Jean-Baptiste Mondino, called Corps et Âmes, or Bodies and Souls.
