Chatham-Kent filmfest to screen Iran’s ‘SFUMATO’

The Chatham-Kent filmfest in Canada is to screen Iranian short doc ‘SFUMATO’.

The 3rd Annual Chatham-Kent International Film Festival in Canada has been scheduled to screen Iranian short documentary ‘SFUMATO’.

Directed and produced by Amir-Ali Mirderikvand, the 30-minute doc narrates the story of the members of a family that live in a village.

The children of the family are of great support and try to cover every need of the family. But they run into troubles and face some obstacles.

In addition to the challenges, the film depicts Iranian culture, the role of children in the Iranian family dynamic, and the role of females in Iranian society.

It explores how one family is breaking free of the traditional constraints by encouraging their daughter in her efforts to obtain a license and drive a motorcycle.

The doc won the Best Documentary Film award and the Best Director award at the 2020 Ahmedabad International Children Film Festival in India, the best documentary award at the 6th Primo Piano Film Festival (Premio Fausto Rossano) in Italy, and the award for Best Public Education Value as well as two Honorable Mentions for Inspiration and Music at the 2021 Archaeology Channel International Film Festival in the US.

It has also gone on screen at the French Riviera Motorcycle Film Festival, the Gbeck Future Film Festival in Canada, and the Taos Shortz Film Festival in the US.

The Chatham-Kent Film Festival showcases films from established and emerging filmmakers, welcoming entries from around the world.

The 2021 edition of the event is slated for October 2.
