‘Alphabet’ wins Best Animation Short at NY’s Artists Forum
Art and Experience: Iranian short animation ‘Alphabet’ directed by Kianoush Abedi has won Best Animation Short award at the Artists Forum Festival of the Moving Image in New York, US.
The 6-minute animated piece narrates the story of people who have forgotten life and are separated from knowledge and truth. The animation depicts a nation that has forgotten the alphabet to life, cannot see, cannot hear, and cannot speak, but the words are waiting for them impatiently.
The film was also nominated for the festival’s most prestigious award, the 2018 JURORS AWARD.
‘Alphabet’ has recently won Best Animation award at the 3rd Revolution Me Film Festival in New York, US.
The third edition of the Artists Forum Festival of the Moving Image was held on 11-13 October 2018.
Two other Iranian animations, ‘Blows with the Wind’, directed by Hazhir As’adi, and ‘Balance’ by Barzan Rostami, had also participated at the American festival.
