Iran-Denmark ‘Song Sparrow’ to go on Belgian screen

Iran-Denmark animated piece ‘Song Sparrow’’ is to go on screen at the 12th Millennium Festival in Belgium.

Iranian-Danish animated piece ‘Song Sparrow’ has been selected to go on screen at the 12th edition of the Millennium Festival in Belgium.

Produced, written, and directed by Farzaneh Omidvarnia, the short animation is about a group of refugees who try to arrive in a safe country in search for a better life.

They pay a smuggler to take them across the boarders in a fridge truck. However, the freezing temperature of the truck turns their hopes for a better future into a fierce struggle for survival.

The short title has taken part and won several honors at different global events, including best short animation award at the 2019 Giffoni Film Festival in Italy, special mention at the Cortile International Short Film Festival in Italy, best animated film award at the Festival Internazionale del Cortometraggio in France, special mention at the MyArt Film Festival in Italy, and Best Short Animation Award at the 20th Lebu International Film Festival in Chile.

The Iran-Denmark joint production is qualified for Oscar 2021 by winning the award at the Lebu event.

The Millennium festival aims to showcase high-quality independent documentary films that focus on the relationship of man to the world.

The event selects films that are linked to the major challenges of the 21st century.

The 12th edition of the Millennium festival is scheduled for March 27-April 4, 2020.
