Award for ‘Mazar-i-Sharif’ at Australia Film Festival

Iranian film ‘Mazar-i-Sharif’ has won the award for the best feature with a budget under $250,000 at the Phoenix Film Festival Melbourne (PFFM), Australia, 2017.
Directed by Abdolhassan Barzideh, the movie is the story of Taliban’s attack on the Iranian Consulate in the city of Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan, 19 years ago, IRNA reported.
During the attack on August 8, 1998, Taliban militants killed eight Iranian diplomats and an IRNA correspondent.
One diplomat Allahmadad Shahsavan, had a narrow escape and an Afghan family helped him reach Iran safely after 19 days of walking on a dangerous route.
Masoud Raygan, Hossein Yari and Mahtab Keramati star in the movie.
The PFFM aims at building a festival that will be on par with Sundance, Cannes, and other major festivals but geared to the truly independent filmmakers, actors, and scriptwriters.
