An award which recognizes "the importance of parents to listen to their children’s deep emotions and needs".

We are happy to announce that animated documentary Father won the CIFEJ Prize for the best film at the 8th Tehran Animation Film Festival (March 3-7). CIFEJ stands for International Centre of Films for Children and Young People. It is an international NGO dedicated to promoting excellence in the audio-visual media for young audiences.

The CIFEJ Jury at the Tehran Festival – Ebrahim Forouzesh from Iran, Dragan Milinković Fimon from Serbia and Isabel Herguera from Spain - awarded Father for its universal message: the importance of parents to listen to their children’s deep emotions and needs.

Father features five parallel realities in which the impossible dialogue between a child and a father would take place. The film is based on authentic experiences of several young people. It was directed by five unique artists, among them the Croatian animation director Veljko Popović.
