Art and ExperienceIranian short animation ‘Maned & Macho’ has been scheduled to vie at the Giffoni 2017 Film Festival in Italy.

Directed by Shiva Sadeq-Asadi, the short animation is to be screened at the 47th edition of the festival.

Being present at the official competition section of the event, ‘Maned & Macho’ is Iran’s only representative at the Italian event.

During the festival, the children and teenagers watch the films, learn about the filmmaking process, and are called to judge them and award the best ones with prizes.

The 47th edition of the festival is scheduled to be held on July 14-22, 2017 in Italy.
