Iran’s ‘The Castle’ wins award at South Korean fest

The 2020 Sinchon Image Festival in South Korea awards Iran’s ‘The Castle’.

Iranian short flick ‘The Castle’ has grabbed the Sinchon Prize and the Best Medium Film awards at the 2020 edition of the Sinchon Image Festival in South Korea.

Written and directed by Saba Qasemi, a brief synopsis of ‘The Castle’ reads, “Some castles are made of bricks. Some are made out of books, but all castles stand by memories”.

Sajjad Tabesh, Sima Sheybani, Mahdokht Molaee, Emad Emami, Armin Sayyad, and Ali Nasir are among the cast members of the short film.

The short flick has previously gone on screen at several film festivals, including the 16th Angel Film Awards-Monaco International Film Festival and the 1st annual Arizona International Short Film Festival, both in the US.

It is also scheduled to compete at the MEIHODO International Youth Visual Media Festival in Japan late this December.

The Sinchon Image festival welcomes filmmakers, writers and image professionals to showcase their works and hosts films of different genres, including short film, documentary and commercial art.

Started in 2020, the first edition of the event was held on December 11-12.
