Atlanta Film Festival in the US is slated to host Iranian film ‘Highlight’.
Directed by Shahrzad Dadgar, the film will compete at the 42nd edition of the American event.
The film narrates the story of people who face challenges following an accident. Taking care of the injured and waiting for them to recover is making the situation hard.
Atlanta Film Festival is one of only two-dozen Academy Award qualifying festivals in the U.S.
The festival is one of the largest and longest-running festivals in the country, welcoming an audience of nearly 25,000 to discover hundreds of new independent, international, animated, documentary, and short films, selected from more than 3,000 submissions from all over the world.
Atlanta Film Festival screenings often include in-person dialog with filmmakers, providing audiences, artists and industry professionals with meaningful opportunities to network, interact and engage.
The 2018 edition of the event is slated for April 13-22, 2018.
