TEHRAN, Jul. 29 (MNA) – Iranian documentary ‘Beloved’, directed by Yaser Talebi, has been selected to vie with other titles at the 13th Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) in Australia.

Directed by Yaser Talebi, the Iranian documentary has been named as one of the titles vying for best prize at the 13th edition of Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) in Australia.
