‘Stripy’ to Vie at Int’l Animation Festivals

The Iranian short animation ‘Stripy’, which participated independently at the 2015 Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France last week, has been selected to attend Brazil’s Anima Mundi International Animation Festival in July.
Commenting on the benefits of his attendance in the out-of-competition section at Annecy with his short animation, animator Babak Nekouei hailed the occasion “as his first international appearance and a platform for his work to be seen in the world.”
Nekouei who directed ‘Stripy’ along with his brother Behnoud, said it was one of the 16 short animations found appropriate to be shown to adolescents at Annecy, MNA reported.
Economy, culture and education are the three elements of concern for the festival and his work was valued for its educational merits.
The animation shows a factory with all workers instructed to paint stripes on the boxes. The work is being done in the usual mundane way, until one of the workers decides to paint the boxes differently.
Anima Mundi, the next stop for ‘Stripy,’ kicks off on July 10 in Rio de Janeiro. Five other Iranian animations will also be present at the Brazilian event.
Having received an honorary diploma from the 9th Tehran Animation Festival, the four-minute animation is scheduled to take part in festivals in Poland, India, England and Slovakia later this year.
