The Oxford Film Festival in US has awarded Iranian short ‘The Recess’.

The short film, written, produced, and directed by Navid Nikkhah-Azad won the award for best short film at the event.

The short tells the story of a 17-year-old school-girl who runs away from school to watch the football match of her beloved club.

Sahar, along with three of her friends, is planning to exit the school during the break in order to watch the match between Esteghlal FC and Al Ain FC at Azadi Sports Complex.

Mozhan Kordi, Reyhaneh Naieean, Niloufar Shokouhinia, and Ghazal Khalili are on the cast list.

The short participated in several film festivals including the 13th edition of the Sofia MENAR Film Festival (SMFF) in Bulgaria.

According to the OFF’s official website, due to the situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic “the current plans for that upcoming edition of the film festival will feature a hybrid approach including virtual and drive-in presentations, as well as the prospect of returning to theaters”.

The 18th edition of the OFF was held on March 24-28, 2021.
