The 50th edition of the Annual USA Film Festival also picked out Iranian animation ‘Malakout’. The title has been screened at a number of global events, including the 12th Crystal Palace International Film Festival in the UK.
Founded in 1967, the Humboldt Int’l Film Fest is the world’s oldest student-run film festival.
The 53rd edition of the festival was initially slated for April 24-28, but US fest in California cancelled all brick-and-mortar screenings due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year’s edition of the event will instead take place online.
