TEHRAN (IFILM) -- A lineup of three Iranian titles has been selected to compete at the 2nd edition of Global University Film Awards (GUFA) in China.
The lineup includes two short films, naming ‘Red Wheat Fields’ by Asad Bahreyni and ‘Slaughter’ co-directed by Amir-Hossein Fathi and Aki Zandkarimi.
Arman Gholipour’s ‘Beyond the Fence’ will also represent Iran in the documentary section of the Chinese film event.
