‘21 Days Later’, a feature film directed by Mohammad Reza Kheradmandan, will compete in the 11th edition of Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) in Australia.

It is a melodrama which revolves around the life of a teenager named Morteza who faced many challenges on his way to realize his dreams, Mehr News Agency reported.

The movie is to compete with other titles to win the award for Best Youth Feature Film. APSA will be held in Brisbane, Australia on November 23.

Iranian animated piece ‘Release from Heaven’ by Ali Noori Oskouei has also been accepted for the screening program of the event.

Set in a war-torn country, the animation narrates the story of a female writer and teacher who has to accompany two of her students on a life changing journey.

In the previous edition of APSA, ‘Starless Dream’ by Mehrdad Oskouei won Best Documentary Feature Film award, while the Award for Outstanding Achievement in Film in the Asia Pacific region was presented to Iranian producer Manoochehr Mohammadi.

Established in 2007 and headquartered in Brisbane, APSA, is endorsed by UNESCO and FIAPF – International Federation of Film Producers Associations.
