TEHRAN (IFILM) --- Iranian short flick ‘Leo’ has been selected to take part in the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen in Germany.
Written and directed by Moeen Rouholamini, the 5-minute flick will be screened at the Children’s and Youth Film Competition section of the 67th edition of the German event.
Although no details on the film’s plot summary has been released to the media yet, the film’s teaser shows it is about children and war, like the director’s previous work ‘The City of Honey’.
‘The City of Honey’ was Rouholamini’s debut film; however, it could bring him to fame as it was screened at various global events and won some awards, including the Fice Jury Special Mention and Platea Diffusa award at the Italian del Cinema dei Diritti Umani di Napoli Festival.
‘Leo’ has also been touring international events. It won the Jury award at the just a minute festival in the U.S.
According to the official website of the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, the fest was launched in 1954 to become world’s oldest running short film event.
This year’s edition of the fest, slated for May 1-10, will be held both in place and online.
