The Accordion at Interfilm Short Film Festival in Berlin

The Accordion by Jafar Panahi has been selected for the competition "Confrontations-Making a Difference" at the 27th Interfilm Short Film Festival in Berlin, one of the most important short film festivals in Europe and the oldest international film festival in Berlin after the Berlinale.
The competition "Confrontations-Making a Difference" features short movies focusing on social injustice, intolerance and violence, just some of the themes that confront us every day in the media. The aim of the competition is to present stories - such as The Accordion - focusing on people on the margins of society, everyday heroes and those whose lives are dominated by external influences.

The short will be screened on November 17 and 18, 2011
