‘The Other’, a 9-minute coproduction by Ako Zandkarimi and Saman Hosseinpour, will be participating in the 11th edition of the WFF, slated for November 8-15, 2020.
The short flick takes us to a world of suspicion and mistrust. It is a complicated story of a man who is left with a daughter from his recently deceased wife. It gets all nasty when he suspects that his daughter might belong to some other man who his wife had an affair with.
The flick recently took home the best director award from the 5th French Lyon Young Film Festival as well as the Grand Prix of the Silk Road section of the 2020 Cannes International Independent Film Festival (CIIFF) in France.
‘The Other’ was also screened at the 7th international Festival of Cinema Povero in Italy, the 2020 Berlin Kurdish Film Festival in Germany and the 10th Kaohsiung Film Festival Int’l Short Film Competition (KFF) in Taiwan.
‘The Other’ is already the winner of the Best Cinematography award at the 13th Int’l Film and Music Festival Kustendorf in Serbia and the Best Silent Film award at the 2020 Venice Intercultural Film Festival.
The 14th Grand OFF World Independent Short Film Awards, which is slated for November 23-28, 2020 in Poland, has recently nominated ‘The Other’ for Best Production Design award.
On December 9-13, 2020, the short film will also compete at the Brazil’s Alter do Chão film festival.
The Winchester Film Festival provides a platform for talented emerging and seasoned short filmmakers.
