The second edition of Phoenician International Film Festival in France is scheduled to screen ‘The Fox’.

The International Competition section of the festival will screen the short animated piece by Sadegh Javadi.

Javadi’s ‘The Fox’ tells the story of a young fox experiencing its first love. Meanwhile, it gets caught by a hunter who puts a bell around the fox’s neck and returns it to the woods. Now, the fox’s efforts to survive and love all begin.

‘The Fox’ has so far attended several international film events, including the 11th biennial Tehran Int’l Animation Festival (TIAF), 2018 Kinofilm Manchester Int’l Short Film Festival in the UK and 2018 CINANIMA Int’l Animated Film Festival in Portugal.

Among the highest accolades bagged by ‘The Fox’ are best short film award from the World Festival of Animated Film in the Bulgarian city of Varna and the same award from the 7th Cebu Int’l Film Festival in the Philippines.

As an independent film festival, the Phoenician International Film Festival’s mission is “to celebrate the motion picture and provide a platform for filmmakers to have their work awarded and screened.”

The event is set for March 14-16, 2019 in French cities of Paris and Lyon.
