The 2nd edition of the Dublin Independent Film Festival in Ireland has awarded Iranian feature ‘Leakage’.
Directed by Suzan Iravanian, the Iranian title received the Best Feature Film award of the Irish event.
‘Leakage’ is about a middle-aged woman whose body leaks crude oil, which on the one hand is empowering her, and on the other hand, it is bringing uncertainty and paranoia to her life.
After certain events, the oil is gradually trivialized and it is just there to solve some small family issues.
The Dublin Independent Film Festival aims to screen a high-quality program of indie films from all over the world and to create a venue for filmmakers and audiences to connect. The Festival’s goal is to discover new talent, films and filmmakers with potential, and to recognize the collaborative work this art-form is funded on.
The program focuses on independent films of different genres, with no limitations on length, style or country of origin. After the screening there is an award ceremony and a networking event with filmmakers and audience opening a space to meet inspiring people from the film industry.
The 2nd edition of the Dublin Independent Film Festival was held at Light House Cinema Smithfield on November 5, 2019.
