Iran’s animation industry promising, Indian critic says

An Indian film critic, Sajal Datta, who has participated in the 42nd Fajr International Film Festival (FIFF), has termed the Iranian-made animations as promising.
In an interview with FIFF, Datta said that children’s movies are popular in Indian culture.
Some four movies from Iran competed in the recent Kolkata International Film Festival.
Referring to the Iranian celebrated filmmaker Majid Majidi’s co-production in India, he said that joint work is of prime importance and shows the constructive cooperation of Iran and India.
Co-production results in cultural exchange in the production stage of the cinematic work, he underlined.
Iranian movies’ credibility is high, he said, describing the FIFF as well-known in the region.
“It’s my 9th time being in Iran,” the Indian expert pointed out.Indian cinema mainly deals with the commercial section and the serious section.
Serious sections of both cinemas of Iran and India are similar, he underlined.
“Iranian flicks touch my heart due to the fact that both cinemas enjoy the same joys and sorrows,” he said noting that this shows cultural similarity.
Sajal Datta has been the film selector in previous editions of the Kolkata International Film Festival, and Kolkata International Children’s Film Festival.
The 42nd edition of the FIFF presided by Mojtaba Amini is underway in Milad Tower, west of Tehran, as of February 1.
