Two Entries at SIFFCY

Two Iranian short films will compete in the Smile International Film Festival for Children & Youth (SIFFCY), December 21-27 in New Delhi.
‘Cloudy Children’ and ‘Red Dream’ are the two Iranian entries in the first edition of the event, which is set to be held annually in the Indian capital, Mehr News Agency reported.
‘Cloudy Children’, directed by Reza Fahimi, tells the story of the struggle of two rural kids “over things that cannot be earned.”
The 18-minute film has attended several national and international festivals and won awards including Japan’s 2015 Grand Prix of Short Shorts Film Festival and two prizes at the Dytiatko International Children’s Television Festival in Ukraine.
‘Red Dream’, by Shahriar Pourseyedian, narrates the story of a boy, Muhammad, who has a dream as the New Year is approaching.
The 21-minute film has garnered awards at the 7th Annual Iranian Film Festival, San Francisco, Albania’s International Film Festival for Children and Youth Audience, as well as Dytiatko in Ukraine.
SIFFCY is a unique film platform devoted to the greater appreciation of meaningful cinema which can bring about change in the society by showcasing films with substance, supporting emerging filmmakers, recognizing the pioneers and leaders of the entertainment industry and promoting the diverse perspectives of world cinema.
Hosting 50 feature films, short films and documentaries this year, the event will cater to young people (aged 6 to 25).
