BEST FICTION SHORT 2018

 

MINIKINO FILM WEEK 4 BEST FICTION SHORT 2018Fiction enhances our ability to understand other people as it gives space to ideas expressed in its storytelling. Fiction shorts need to capture the attention of the audience extraordinarily quickly. The nominees for Best Fiction Short 2018 are the slow pacing shorts that managed to keep us wanting to know more about the people in the made-believe (yet real) world, and foster empathic growth to comprehend the complexity and contradictions of human situations.

Arian Vazirdaftari / Iran, Islamic Republic of / 2018 / 20:00
