The 14th edition of the event bestowed its Special Jury Mention Award to Pedram Mehrkhah for his short film ‘Tide’.
The film is the story of two strangers who spend a night in each other’s company on the beach.
A brief synopsis for the flick reads, “on his way home, Amirali sees a familiar girl. The girl, however, does not remember him. Over this misunderstanding, they stay together a night on the beach. He wakes up at sunshine but the girl has vanished into thin air”.
