London Iranian Film Festival 2013 announces winners

The fourth edition of Iranian film festival in the United Kingdom’s capital city of London has announced this year’s winners of the event in different sections.

Pouran Derakhshandeh’s Hush! Girls Don’t Scream has garnered the Best Feature length Award of the event.

Hush! Girls Don’t Scream received a great attention from the movie goers during its recent public screenings in several countries such as Canada and the United States.

The Best Animation Award went to Sublimation directed by Shakiba Shabani.

Here Is Iran by Vahid Navidian won the best documentary award of the festival while the Best Short Film Award of the event presented to The Soldier and the Juggler by Abolfazl Golfam.

A number of screen productions in various categories including feature-length, short and documentary films were screened at the annual festival.

“Iranian cinema has reputation all of the world as it rests on passionate, art and crafts,” one of the event’s organizers Vivi Mellegard had earlier said.

Meeting Leila by Adel Yaraqi, The Wedlock by Rouhollah Hejazi, I Am His Wife by Mostafa Shayesteh and Nowhere Nobody by Ebrahim Sheibani were among the movies displayed at the event.

Sponsored by the brand new online distribution platform IMVBox, the festival is the only leading event to present the new films from Iranian cinema.

Iranian cinema continues to build its international profile, especially since Asghar Farhadi’s A Separation won Best Foreign Language Film at the 2012 Oscars.

Established in 2010, London Iranian Film Festival aims to produce the best and most diverse Iranian film program in the UK and to attract as many people as possible to view Iranian cinema.

The fourth Iranian film festival in London took place at Ciné Lumière in Kensington and the Greenwood Theatre in London Bridge from November1 to 9, 2013.
