Short Animation Film in Int’l Arena

Iranian short animation ‘Changeover’, directed by Mehdi Alibeygi, will be on the screen at the Leeds International Film Festival (LIFF), England in November.
Running for two minutes, it is the shortest film selected for the World Animation Award, Mehr News Agency reported. Within a single shot of the corner of a badminton pitch, Alibeygi serves up a deceptively simple comic tale of mistaken identity.
Made in four months, ‘Changeover’ is a colorful and perfectly poised animation which tells the story of a bird on a badminton pitch that mistakes a shuttlecock for another bird.
It has attended different festivals in 2015 and won the Audience Award at Switzerland’s Fantoche, the 3rd Prize of the Seoul Metro-Berliner Fenster as well as the second prize of the 5th Viewster Online Film Festival.
“It was also screened in Berlin’s subways,” Alibeygi said.
The biggest film festival in England outside London, it is a qualifying film festival for the Academy Awards. The winners in International Short Film Competition and World Animation Award are eligible for the Academy’s Short Film Awards.
The 29th LIFF will be held from November 5-19.
