Short animation ‘Nobody’ from Iran has been set to attend the 8th edition of the Lift-Off Global Network Film Festival in the UK.
Directed by Elham Toroqi, ‘Nobody’ tells the story of a white cat living in city of black residents. The cat tries hard to get food but no one seems bothered to give any.
The flick has so far attended a number of international animation festivals, including the 22nd ANIMAC International Film Festival in Spain, the 11th ANIMANIMA International Animation Festival in Serbia, and the first Bute Street Film Festival in the UK.
The 1st Shenandoah Seasonal Film Festival in the US, the 15th Palace International Short Film Festival in Bulgaria, the 2nd Indie Best Films Festival in the US, and the 5th Korca International Film Festival in Albania are among the recent global experiences of ‘Nobody’.
After winning a mention at the 2018 Florida Animation Festival in the US, ‘Nobody’ will also be screened at the 14th International Festival of Animated Films for Children in Slovakia and the 7th Tour International Film festival in Italy.
Initially a film festival, Lift-Off has grown into being a huge platform for emerging artists. This includes feature film content, shorts, commercial, music video content, animations and experimental art-house.
The 8th edition of the Lift-Off Global Network Film Festival is slated for August 21-25, 2018, in London.
