‘Grandad Was a Romantic’ to vie at Athens ANIMFEST 2020

Iran’s animation ‘Grandad Was a Romantic’ is to compete at the 2020 Athens ANIMFEST in Greece.

Iranian animation ‘Grandad Was a Romantic’ has been selected to compete at the 15th edition of the Athens Animfest in Greece.

Directed by Maryam Mohajer, the animation is told through the eyes of a child who narrates the story of her grandfather’s infinite love for her grandmother.

The film records their first interactions – falling in love, getting married and starting a family.

The piece is told skillfully through bold painted animations. It offers a childlike sense of intimacy and frank storytelling.

The animation was nominated for the 2020 British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) held in February.
