176 Animations at Int’l Festival

Nearly 176 animations have been selected to compete in the 9th Tehran International Animation Festival (TIAF).
The high participation of 70 countries submitting over 1,000 films and entry of 800 national films along with the presence of 30 animation producers is remarkable and demonstrates that TIAF “has found its place and is determined to take decisive steps to lead and support Iranian animation in the future,” MNA reported.
After reviewing all the titles submitted, the selection committee finally chose 176 entries to compete in the international competition section.
The shortlisted works include 137 titles for the international competition section (119 international and 18 Iranian), 36 student films (30 international and 6 Iranian works), and 3 feature animations.
The selection committee of this year’s edition comprises Ahmad Kalantari, Kianoush Abedi, Amir-Hassan Nedaei, Mohamamd-Ali Shadmani and Sara Khalili.
The 9th TIAF will be held March 8-12, at the Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults (IIDCYA), in Tehran.
