Compared to previous years, we see more mature narratives in animation works/ The works of animation festival should be reviewed throughout the year.

The judge of the national section of the 13th Tehran International Animation Festival, pointing out that animation cinema in Iran has made good progress in recent years, considered the works of this year's animation festival to have more mature narratives.

According to Kanoon General Directorate for Public Relations, Hoda Esnoashari, the judge of the national section of the 13th Tehran International Animation Festival, emphasized that animation cinema has reached the desired level visually for years and it can be said that it has almost no weakness in this field. There were usually weaknesses in the direction, script and narrative, but this year's films have more mature narratives than previous years. The quality of movies has improved in all aspects, and we have seen a much more significant improvement in the advertising sector.

This animation director pointed out that the competition in the short film section is usually more than in other sections, and in this period of the festival, due to the fact that there are more applicants in this section and the works have a high quality level, the competition is heavier and more serious, and in the experimental sections, Serials, feature films and commercials seem less competitive.

​She added: "Also, in some children's films, we see many jokes that children cannot understand at all, or even some jokes are not suitable for children." Knowing the audience is one of the main issues that should be considered, but many films are indecisive when facing their audience. This weakness was much more visible in the past, although this year it can be said that it has become weaker, but it is still there. In many cases, films made for children are more meaningful works, and some works made for adults are less meaningful works.

​The director of the short animation "Borim Bazar" said about the role of the animation festival in the growth and promotion of animation cinema in Iran: Once upon a time, the only place where you could watch animation films was the festival, but due to the widening of access portals to animation works such as many platforms and festivals that are held, this role of festivals has faded. Festivals once had a role similar to universities and schools, and in my opinion, today only holding a festival cannot help and have a constructive role, so it is necessary to hold meetings to review and evaluate this cinema in these events, and these meetings should definitely not be held on the days of the festival is limited.

She added: We usually observe the festival and pay intensive attention to this cinema in limited days, and unfortunately, after the end of the festival, everything is forgotten and until one or two years later, when the festival is held again, no one will pay attention to this cinema and its weaknesses. It is necessary that during the year the works are displayed and examined in order to determine the weak and strong points.

In the end, the member of the board of directors of the Animated Filmmakers Guild of Iran said about the possibility of holding an annual animation festival: in terms of quality, Iranian animation today has the ability to have serious competition with each other, but due to the economic problems that have intensified in the past year, the speed the production of works has decreased and the number of works has decreased. Unfortunately, the economic situation has caused a pause in the conclusion of contracts, especially in government production, and we have suffered a weakness in quantity. Of course, this problem is not only related to the economic situation, and after the spread of Corona, big studios are also in trouble and there have been major changes in their work processes.
