Iranian film ‘The Dragon’s Treasure’ is to take part in the market of Annecy Int’l Animation Film Festival, Mifa, in France.

Iranian animated film ‘The Dragon’s Treasure’ has made its way to the market of Annecy International Animation Film Festival, Mifa, in France.

‘The Dragon’s Treasure’ is included in the lineup for the Mifa Pitches 2021 program, which aims “to showcase the best original animation film projects in development”, the event’s website reads.

‘The Dragon’s Treasure’ is directed by Ashkan Rahgozar.

“An eight-year-old girl named Sayeh goes on an adventure in search of the dragon's treasure to save her grandmother's village from drought. But she doesn't know that the real treasure is water and she must fill up all the aqueducts,” a synopsis for the film reads.

Co-written by Rahgozar and Aida Noshali, the 2D animation is currently at the pre-production stage, which kicked off last year and will last six more months.

The film is expected to be ready for screening in 2023.

The 2021 edition of Annecy International Animation Film Festival will take place online on June 14-19, and the International Animation Film Market (Mifa) will be held on June 15-18.
