100-sec filmfest extends submission deadline to late January
Art and Experience: The 12th edition of the International 100-sec Film Festival in Iran has extended the submission deadline till end of January 2019.
The main theme and motto of the international section have focused on morality and lifestyle.
“100-sec Film is a new and suitable media for the novel tools with the ability to exceptionally influence the high-speed and obstreperous world today and can blatantly get some seconds of the hurried and impatient audience,” the festival’s website wrote.
The first 100-second Film Festival was held in 2002. Since the 6th edition of the festival, it has been hosted at an international level.
The festival will be held in two categories of ‘competition’ and ‘path of experiment’, showcasing short fiction, documentary or animation films. The ‘world cinema’ competition section will also screen films exclusively made by non-Iranian filmmakers.
The themes include moral and lifestyle, promotion of ethical concepts such as abiding by the law, forgiveness, a new look at life, and breaking the monotony of everyday life.
Considering brevity and paying attention to ethical and humanitarian subjects are what differentiate the 100-sec from other short film festivals around the world.
The 12th edition of the event is slated for February 27 to March 1, 2019 in Tehran.
