Two Iranian short animated pieces, Jebeer directed by Reyhane Mirhashemi, and The Fisherman & Spring by Fatemeh Mohseni have been selected as award finalists at the 35th edition of Cartoon Club – International Festival of Animation Cinema, Comics and Games, in Italy.
Other Iranian animations participating at the festival included Am I a Wolf? by Amir Houshang Moein, Wish I Had a Brother by Nahid Shamsdoust, and The Cyling Wind by Nazanin Sarbandi.
Cartoon Club – International Festival of Animation Cinema, Comics and Games, with its 35 years of existence, is one of the best-known festivals in the Italian scene. According to the events website, it is a remarkable window for animation works, short films in particular – fiction, educational, experimental, computer graphic – and with a whole section solely dedicated to comics: Riminicomix.
The award will be granted to those works whose beauty and artistic sensitiveness leave a trace in the audience and that consequently deserve to emerge and be awarded as winners of a contest, the festival says.
Its 35th edition was held on 13-21 July 2019 in Rimini, Italy.
