Iran’s Animation Industry Holds First-Ever Tehran Cartoon Sessions

“We intend to reveal the black box of animation making, in order to show the audience and the enthusiasts what is going on behind this mysterious curtain,” wrote the organizer of the event Ashkan Rahgozar, who is also the founder of Hoorakhsh and director of the upcoming feature The Last Fiction. “We do not want to merely show animated films, then critique them and/or conduct a narrative analysis. We want, rather, to prepare a practical context in which the challenging process of making an animation can be better appreciated.”

Rahgozar tells Cartoon Brew that the goal is to hold the event every six months, and that they plan to invite foreign artists to also participate in the sessions.

The six films that were presented in the inaugural Tehran Cartoon Sessions were:

  • The Switchman by Mehdi Khorramian
  • Icky by Parastoo Cardgar
  • Jamshid: A Lament fo A Myth by Moin Samadi
  • Ascribed Achievements by Samaneh Shojaei
  • The Servant by Farnoush Abedi
  • Hide and Seek by Mohsen Shokrtalab
