Iranian short ‘Exam’ to vie at Int’l Short Film Festival Berlin

Iranian short ‘Exam’ is to compete at the 2020 interfilm Festival in Germany.

Iranian short film ‘Exam’ has been selected to compete at the 36th International Short Film Festival Berlin (interfilm) in Germany.

Directed by Sonia Haddad, the 15-minute work narrates the story of a girl named Sadaf who has forebodings for the exam she is going to take. 

But today, instead of going to school, she delivers a package of illegal drugs to a client and gets caught in a weird cycle of events.

‘Exam’ has previously grabbed the AFI fest award which made the title qualified for the short film category of the 2021 Oscars.

The 35th Sundance Film Festival in the US also honored the flick’s star Sadaf Asgari with the Special Jury Award.

‘Exam’ has also competed at many other film events, including the Charlotte Film Festival in the US, the Landshut Kurzfilm Festival in Germany, the Annapolis Film Festival in the US, the Film Fest Sundsvall in Sweden, the Brattleboro Women’s Film Festival in the US, the Skepto International Film Festival in Italy, and the Loudoun Arts Film Festival in the US.

The Interfilm Festival will be held online, hosting 270 films in 30 programs.

The festival is an opportunity for filmmakers to showcase their works in an event that is at the same level of importance as Oberhausen Film Festival.  

The event is slated for November 11- December 13, 2020.
