Iranian award-wining short film ‘Birthday Night’ has been scheduled to attend the XpoNorth festival in Scotland.
Directed by Omid Shamd, the 23- minute social short will be among the 14 screenings of the Scottish festival.
A short synopsis of the flick reads, “Ahmad and Ali are two friends and business partners. On their birthday night, as they are travelling back to Ahmad’s home from a job outside the city, they get involved in an accident that was awaiting them. The predicament they are entangled with brings to light some hidden aspects of their personality to one another.”
The short has attended several global events, including the Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival in France as well as the International Amity Short Film Festival and the 6th Mercy to the Universe International Film Competition, both in Turkey.
Some of the festival attendings for ‘Birthday Night’ have brought it a number of awards including Best Short Film award from The 2018 edition of the Linz International Short Film Festival in Austria and the Special Jury Award at the 16th edition of the Wegiel Film Festival in Poland.
The 19th edition of the XpoNorth, which is Scotland’s leading creative industries festival held in the city of Inverness, is slated for July 3-4, 2019.
