Saleh Kashefi’s short flick will be in contention at the Short Films competition program of the 6th edition of the Polish film event.
The program includes motion pictures from all over the world – rich in artistic quality and conveying important messages. It is a non-commercial event.
“Hanieh is a high school student who tries her best to win the poem recitation competition to make her teacher and family happy”, reads a brief synopsis for the 16-minute short.
Paniz Esmaeeli and Anita Baqeri are the main cast members of the flick.
The short has already attended a number of international events, including the Poitiers Film Festival in France and the Kinofilm Manchester International Short Film Festival in the UK.
Over the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will not be held in the month of June as the previous years. Instead, it is rescheduled to be held in October, 2020.
