‘Scarecrow’s Heart’ awarded in Italian filmfest.

TEHRAN, May 01 (MNA) – Behzad Kazzazi’s short animation ‘Scarecrow’s Heart’ has won Best Short Animation prize in Italian Antonio Ricci Festival.

Director of the short animation posted his video message online featuring the award ceremony. In the message, Kazzazi expressed thanks to the juris to recognize his short animation worthy of the award among a host of animations. He told the public that he believed that during the history, despite the domination of the military leaders and despots, artists had won the hearts and minds of the interested public through artistic creation which helped nations in mutual understanding of other nations and thus show sympathy in the times of difficulty and misery. “Art gives the opportunity to people of different races and ethnicities to cast the prejudices of the millennia to sit upon a flat ground and talk their views of life and universe and cherishing of human universal values,” Kazzazi told in the online video. “Movies are source of honor and glory, since they create a society where all people live in symbiosis through mutual respect of diversity and plurality of cultures and beliefs.”

‘Scarecrow’s Heart’ had been screened in Dutch Animation Festival, Bucharest NexT International Film Festival, Romania, and noncompetitive section of Children Animation and TV Film Festival in Italy.

The 17th edition of Antonio Ricci Festival was held in Ravenna, April 27-30. Formerly held under the title Short Dreams, the festival changed to the current appellation after a young collaborator and organizer Antonio Ricci was had died.
