Canadian GbeckFF to host Iranian ‘Amphibious’

The Gbeck Future filmfest in Canada is to screen Iranian ‘Amphibious’.

The Gbeck Future Film Festival (GbeckFF) in Canada has scheduled to screen Iranian feature ‘Amphibious’.

Directed by Borzou Niknejad, the film is about Ata who lives with his father as well as two of his friends, Hamid and Mojtaba.

Their friendship is apparently strong, but the arrival of a specific person triggers surprising events.

“Hamid is an amphibious. If he doesn't go underwater, he will be crushed under the feet,” a synopsis of the film reads.

‘Amphibious’ is starring Pejman Jamshidi, Mohammad-Javad Ezzati, Hadi Hejazifar, and Setareh Pesyani.

The movie was premiered at the 38th edition of the Fajr Film Festival in Iran and went on screen at the 19th Dhaka International Film Festival in Bangladesh.

According to the GbeckFF website, “It is a competition of original films created by filmmakers from around the world, designed to discover and support young filmmakers.

The short list for the festival will be released in February 2021, and the winners will be announced in April.
