Iran’s ‘The Dog that was Sick’ wins UK award

Iran’s animation ‘The Dog that was Sick’ grabs Best Art Design award at the 2020 Canterbury Anifest in the UK.

Iranian animation ‘The Dog that was Sick’ has grabbed the Best Art Design award at the 2020 edition of the Canterbury Anifest in the UK.

Directed by Parvin Tajvid, the animation narrates the story of a dog that is sick because of eating whatever it can find.

Doctors try to save the dog by extracting food from its stomach, but the dog eats them again.

Produced by the Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults, the animated piece has already won awards at the 32nd International Film Festival for Children and Youth in Isfahan and the 11th Tehran International Animation Festival in Iran. 

Launched in 2007, the Canterbury Anifest is an award-winning animation festival and the largest annual event of this kind in the South East of the UK.

It’s a great community event that invites people of all ages to come and experience the magic of animation, allowing them to get involved with something out of the ordinary.

With its range of workshops, master-classes, talks and films, it has something for everyone.

The 12th edition of the event was held on February 29-March 1, 2020.
