Iran’s ‘Driving Lessons’ to attend Tribeca Film Festival

Iranian short film ‘Driving Lessons’ directed by Marzieh Riahi will go on screen at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival in the US, slated for April 24 to May 5.

Riahi’s film narrates the story of Bahareh, who, according to Iranian law, must have her traditional, chauvinistic husband accompany her during driving lessons so that she and her instructor are not left together without a third party’s presence.

The cast of the film includes Linda Kiani, Alireza Sanifar, Salar Khamseh and Sanaz Mesbah, ifilmtv.ir reported.

The movie is in Persian with English subtitles.

The Tribeca Film Festival is a prominent film festival held in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan, showcasing a diverse selection of independent films. Since its inaugural year in 2002, it has become a recognized outlet for independent filmmakers in all genres to release their work to a broad audience.

Recipients of the Tribeca Film Festival awards for Best Narrative Short, Best Documentary Short, and Best Animated Short will qualify for consideration in the Academy Awards' short film categories, provided the film complies with Academy rules.
