'Icky' takes best animation award in Italy

Iranian animation 'Icky', directed by Parastou Kardgar, won the best animation award at the 16th Festival Internazionale del Cinema d'Arte in Italy.

The festival, which celebrates cinema art in all its forms, took place from October 11 to 14. Another Iranian film 'Noise' by Pouria Razi was also nominated in the festival, Mehr News Agency reported.

'Icky' portrays a world in which people have a solved Rubik's cube in their head, but there's a child whose head is different from others in that her Rubik's cube remains unsolved.

Earlier, 'Icky' had won several international awards from a number of festivals including best animation at Romania's Short to the Point festival, best animation at Seattle festival in the US, best animation at NCU's international student festival and best director at Bollywood International Film Festival.

Launched in 2001, Festival Internazionale del Cinema d'Arte aims to contribute to greater disclosure and affirmation of the values of culture and art (painting, sculpture, literature, theater, dance, film, music, architecture, photography, comics, etc.) through the language of film. The festival is open both to foreign and Italian producers, as well as cinema companies, associations and singles.
