‘Empty View’ wins Best Animation at Strasburg Filmfest.
Art and Experience: Iranian short animated piece ‘Empty View’ directed by Ali Zare Ghanatnowi, has won Best Animation award at the 1st Strasburg Film Festival in Virginia, United States.
Directed by Ali Zare Ghanatnowi, ‘Empty View’ has snatched the Best Animation award at the 1st edition of Strasburg Film Festival in the United States.
‘Empty View’ is the heartfelt story of a mother waiting for her son to come back home from war.
The festival has praised Zare’s animation for its “unique and charming visual style” and sound design, adding that ‘Empty View’ is a “testament to the unique power of animation to bring life to the artificial. With enough care and talent poured into every second, a film created entirely by hand can feel as real, if not more so, than reality captured on a camera.”
The animated piece has recently won two awards at the third Best Short Fest in Canada, and the third Great Message International Film Festival in India.
The first edition of Strasburg Film Festival was held on 9-11 November 2018 in Virginia, US.
