Iranian director Bakhshi to serve as jury member of Greek festival

Iranian director Mohammad Bakhshi, who is famous for the short film 'Are You Volleyball?!', was invited to join the panel of jury for the Third Independent Political Activism Short Film Festival (iPAS) in Athens, Greece, slated for April 9-12.

His film 'Are You Volleyball?!' garnered the best viewer choice award of the iPAS last year, ifilmtv.com reported.

'Are You Volleyball?!' narrates the story of a group of Arab speaking asylum seekers who have lost their pacifications during the war and are seeking a better place in the world to live in. They arrive on the border and the story starts.

Bakhshi's short has won a number of awards from internationally celebrated film events such as the Global Film Los Angeles Film Festival in the US and the Milan Film Festival in Italy.

Iranian films, such as: 'Breathing', directed by Farshid Ayyoubinejad, 'Gloomy Green' by Forouzan Jalali, 'The Fox' by Sadeq Javadi and 'Red Wheat Fields' by Asad Bahreini will be presented at the third edition of the iPAS festival.

The iPAS is dedicated to the work of filmmakers from around the world with defiantly independent political and social visions.
