TEHRAN (IFILM) -- Iranian short flicks ‘Dad’ and ‘My Heart’ have been honored at the 11th edition of the Emerging Lens Cultural Film Festival in Canada.
‘Dad’ received the award for Best animation and the Audience Choice Award of the Canadian event went to ‘My Heart’.
Directed by Yasser Talebi, ‘My Heart’ is a 2-minute animation with a touching story about the love students have for their teacher who’s sick and in a hospital.
Directed by Mohammad Keivanmarz, ‘Dad’ is a 7-minute animation about a young boy who tries to attract his depressed father’s attention.
The Emerging Lens also screened the 3-minute ‘Blood Feud’ by Sina Rezaee, which shows that the world always finds a way to ruin beautiful things, and the 5-minute ‘The Mask’ by Saba Qasemi, who doesn’t think that adults can see correctly from behind their masks.
Starting in 2010, the Emerging Lens aims to acknowledge the educational power of video, media arts and theatre that is rich in wonder, honest compassion and wisdom; to present the unique work of cultural filmmakers and to create a larger appreciation for their cultural stories; and to be a training ground for our youth storytellers, filmmakers and performers.
The 2021 edition of the Emerging Lens Cultural Film Festival was held on April 21-25.
