‘Kupal’ to vie at Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival
Art and Experience: Iranian feature ‘Kupal’ directed by Kazem Mollaie will be screened at the 4th Annual Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival in US.
‘Kupal’ is the unusual story of a hunter and a taxidermist, named Dr. Ahmad Kupal, who, on the last day of the year, faces an unexpected challenge by trapping himself in his basement with little food and no water, having to survive by using creative and desperate means. The storyline of ‘Kupal’ and the tagline is, ‘you can’t be alone in this world!’
The Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival is all about showcasing the outstanding work of first and second time filmmakers. It’s our sole focus and it’s what we do really well. The event takes place in scenic Middlebury, Vermont in late August each year. Our 4th Annual festival will roll out August 23-26, 2018.
The feature has previously scooped Best Feature Film Award at the 13th Huntington Beach’s Film Festival in US, Best Feature Film Award at Brasov International Film Festival in Canada, Best Actor and Best Feature award at 2017 Hamilton Film Festival (HUFF) in Canada, Best Narrative Feature at Arizona Underground Film Festival, Best Feature at Berkeley Video & Film Festival, and Best Film Award at Bogota Film Festival, among many other awards and screenings at international festivals.
