Mehdi Jafari, the producer of “Sword and Sorrow”, congratulated Iran’s animation-makers on good events that occurred in the genre during the past two years.
“This year, three animated works are present in the current Fajr International Film Festival,” and it indicated that animation in Iran is being turned into an industry, the sponsor added.
In his remarks, Jafari appreciated the two-and-a-half-year efforts of the 200-member team for helping produce “Sword and Sorrow” which received several Golden Gazelle awards from the festival three weeks ago.
He went on to stress “Animation is not produced solely for children, but for adults and youth as we did so.”
“Our distance to the global animation market is becoming less day by day,” he underlined.
According to Jafari, the team of producers prioritizes screening of its animation in international cinemas.
Elsewhere in the conference, Emad Rahmani, the co-director of the animation, elaborated on the work, saying it was made after over two years of round-the-clock efforts of the team.
Another director, Mehrdad Mehrabi said that “Sword and Sorrow” was made by using state-of-the-art technologies.
