Mr. Deer by Mojtaba Musavi and The Pattern by Azad Jannati are among the films that will compete in the official section of the festival, which will be held from October 24 to 28.

Mr. Deer is set in a modern but ruined subway in an unknown time. People in this society have animal faces, they have forgotten their humanity and ethics, and they do not avoid sins. Meanwhile, someone with a deer face is trying to reform the society.

The Pattern, which is inspired by the Iraqi chemical weapons attack on Halabja in Iraqi Kurdistan in 1988, tells the story of a rug weaver and the patterns she has in mind.

One Person by Mahbubeh Kalai, about love and loneliness, and Story of a Man without Lips by Milad Shahjani, based on a children’s poem by Ahmad Shamlu about a man who doesn’t have lips to smile, are also among the films.
