Funfair is a short film about members of a family who risk their lives to earn more money in order to escape a life of destitution.
The Iran/Canada co-production will take part at the 64th edition of Cork Film Festival in Ireland, which will take place on 7th – 17th November 2019.
The festivals awards for Grand Prix Irish Short (presented by RTÉ Supporting the Arts) and Grand Prix International Short are Academy Award qualifying, ensuring that the winners in Cork automatically join the Oscars longlist.
