Iranian short animation Scale has scooped a prestigious award at the 2014 edition of Munich International Festival of Film Schools in Germany.
Directed by Amin Rahbar, the animation garnered the high-profile Climate Award of this year’s edition of the film event.
“Scale is a two-minute film which was produced by cutout animation technique,” the director said.
Some 42 screen productions from 22 countries, displaying various themes, took part in the festival.
Scale has been screened and awarded at several international festivals including Hamburg Festival in Germany, Con i minuti contati Festival in Italy, and SHNIT Festival in Switzerland.
The jury congratulated Amin Rahbar on the successful artistic and technical realization of his film, saying, “In just one and a half minutes, the clip illustrates how drastically our environment has changed, the severe damage that has been done to it and the current consequences such as climate change.”
The Munich International Festival of Film Schools is held annually (November 16-22).
