TEHRAN (IFILM) -- Iranian animation ‘Loupetoo’ has been set to compete at the 3rd edition of the KidzCinema, an international children’s film festival in India.
‘Loupetoo’ by Abbas Askari will take part in the festival’s Animation (Long) section.
The film’s name is inspired by the word Kermani people of Iran use to refer to handmade toys that mothers used to make for their children in the past.
The animation is about a hospital where Dr. Saeed Kamali treats his mental patients through letting them make toys.
“A person disguised as a patient vandalizes the workshop and causes its closure. The doctor’s son, Ali, tries to help his father to solve the problem,” a synopsis for the film reads.
‘Loupetoo’ previously took part in various festivals in Iran and across the world, including the Universal Kids Film Festival in Turkey.
The 3rd edition of the KidzCinema will take place on December 2-January 2.
