Short animation ‘Alphabet’ directed by filmmaker Kianoush Abedi, 38, will compete in the competition section of the International Seagull Short Film Festival, February 16-18 in Rogaland, western Norway.

The festival, which is holding its first edition this year, accepts films, animations and documentaries of less than 60 minutes.

Abedi’s 6-minute animation is the story of a people in a state of oblivion and ignorance. It portrays a nation that has forgotten the basic values of life. They cannot see, hear or speak, Roozrang magazine of visual art (Roozrang.com) wrote.

Alphabet is a 3D animation produced in late 2017. Regarding the story of his latest work, Abedi says: “According to my observation, humans are moving away from their true selves with each passing day. The animation is for adults,” Abedi added.

It will also be screened at the second Malatesta Short Film Festival, March 12-14 in the city of Cesena in northern Italy.

Alphabet will be screened in the best animation category of the festival. Other three categories are best fiction, best documentary and best experimental.

Each category of the festival will have one winner. The winners will each receive a cash prize of €250 and supporting services from the festival.

The Iranian animation has also been selected for the First City Film Festival, March 22-25, in Kansas, the US. The festival will grant scholarships, cash prizes, awards and trophies to the winners.
