Iranian short film ‘Limit’ has been awarded at the International Festival Entr’2 marches in France.
Directed by Javad Daraei, the film was awarded the festival’s Grand Jury Award at the 10th edition of the event.
The 7-minute short film is the story of a man in a quiet neighborhood who asks people for help until someone enters his home.
Daraei’s film, shot in the Iranian province of Alborz, is a creative depiction of the struggles disabled people face on a daily basis out of fear of being misjudged by society.
Screenings of ‘Limit’ have been held at international film festivals across the world including in Italy, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Norway, Russia, the US, and the UK.
The short film has received a long list of awards to include Best Picture from the 6th Bleedingham Short Horror Film Festival, Best Drama from the Niagara County Community College Film and Animation Festival, and Best Foreign Short Film at the 3rd Tryon International Film Festival, all in the US.
The list goes on with awards for Best Actor at the 2nd Piggy Bank Film Festival in India, Best Short Film from the 2018 Unknown Film Festival in Russia, and Best Fiction at the 10th Southampton Film Week in the UK among others.
