The Accolade Global Film Festival in the US has awarded Iranian feature film ‘Mastermind’.

Directed by Azita Mougouee, the feature has won a special mention at the 17th edition of the American film event.

A brief synopsis for the flick reads, “Iran and Spain have agreed to launch a big project in the island of Hendurabi in south of Iran.

Many companies and people have participated in the tender offer with the aim of winning it and gaining big sum of easy money out of such cushy business.”

Merila Zarei, Pejman Jamshidi, Bahram Radan, Hanieh Tavassoli, and Mehrdad Seddiqian have starred in the film.

‘Mastermind’ has had diverse shooting locations and some of the scenes have been filmed overseas in Canada, Cypress and Spain.
