The Iranian short film, ‘Sangbal,’ written and directed by Amin Sahraei, was nominated to win the Grand Prix at the 22nd Up and Coming International Film Festival Hanover in Germany.

The film is the only representative of Iran at the festival and was selected from 3,300 films. It will compete with films from 32 countries including the US, Belgium, Canada, and Russia, IRNA reported.

The festival will be held from November 22 through 28.

The story of the film is an allusion to human beings whose wings were clipped in childhood and who have no way to fly.

The film has already been awarded at the Fajr International Film Festival.

The philosophy of this German festival is: Just be yourself. Trust yourself. Have your own visions and create without limitations.

This is a discovery festival, a place to meet and a springboard for young talents up to the age of 27 years from Germany and all over the world.

Afshin Ghiyasi, Parastou Qaed-Rahmat, Hassan Khan-Hosseini and Rojina Mir-Seyyed are among the cast of the film.

This year there is a special online edition of the festival due to the pandemic.
