TEHRAN (Iran News) – Iranian short film ‘Delirium’ will take part in the competition section of the 26th edition of the Paris International Fantastic Film Festival (PIFFF) in France.
‘Delirium’ short film has been co-directed by brothers Vahid and Navid Nami, Mehr News Agency reported.
“For anyone that opposes the dictatorship, the smallest punishment is to have an ear cut off. On a rainy night, a man finds an ear on the ground,” reads the synopsis of the film.
The PIFFF was created in 2011 by the Paris Ciné Fantastique association as a venue for horror, thriller, and science fiction films. It takes place in the French capital every year in December.
The PIFFF’s mission is to highlight genre cinema in all its aspects and for all audiences: Films may often by atypical, by their content, by their production, by the aesthetics they represent and even by their stories. The PIFFF seeks to put – or bring back – in the limelight surprising and daring art pieces, often rare ones.
Willing to address an ever wider audience, but also to promote current films which may be in the margins of current production, the festival is committed to showing film premieres in Paris, with most of them being screened for the first time in France.
The aim is to create an appealing event to draw the broader public and excite people’s interest in the whole program, to make them more interested in works that they would not have considered watching at first sight.
