TEHRAN (IFILM) -- The Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFAN) in South Korea has awarded Iranian feature ‘At the End of Evin’.
Co-directed by Mohammad and Mehdi Torabbeigi, the Iranian movie received Méliès International Festivals Federation (MIFF) Award for Best Asian Film at the 2021 edition of the BIFAN.
Produced by Amir Samavati, the 80-minute film was screened at the World Fantastic Red section of the BIFAN on July 11 and 15.
‘At the End of Evin’ is about A men who moves from a small town to Tehran in order to do a gender reassignment surgery. In Tehran, he meets Nasser, a rich man who promises to pay for his surgery. It seems that Amen has a very similar voice to Nasser’s daughter, Annie who is about to inherit her grandmother’s house and Amen is supposedly asked to play Annie’s role in front of the grandmother. However, this is not the real reason.
Mehdi Pakdel, Rana Azadivar, and Babak Karimi are on the cast list of the movie.
The Méliès International Festivals Federation (MIFF), formerly known as the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation (EFFFF) is a network of 22 genre film festivals from 16 countries.
It was established in Brussels in 1987 to promote and support European cinema, particularly films in the fantasy, horror and science fiction genres.
The BIFAN is an international film festival held annually in July in Bucheon, South Korea. Prior to 2015, it was known as the Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival.
The 2021 edition of the BIFAN has been scheduled for July 8-18.
