'Funfair' is about members of a family who risk their lives to earn more money and escape a life of destitution, Mehr News Agency reported.
It will take part in the short films section of the annual film festival, which has been held since 1997 in Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia.

The 23rd edition of the event will be held during November 15-December 1, 2019.
'Funfair' is also scheduled to take part in the 20th edition of Kerry Film Festival, an Oscar-qualifying fest, slated to be held in Ireland during October 17-20, 2019.
