 IRNA – The Iranian documentary short film ‘Mrs. Iran’s Husband’ won the Best International Short Documentary Award thereby making it eligible for the Best Documentary Short category at the Oscars.
The film, directed by Marjan Khosravi, is a thorough exploration of family dynamics in Iran.
The Canadian film festival, which showcased 214 films from 72 nations, was held from April 27 to May 7.
Out of the 15 sections, only four films were shortlisted for the Oscars, and ‘Mrs. Iran’s Husband’ made the cut.  “This award is rightfully deserved by ‘Mrs. Iran’s Husband,’ an honest family portrait that draws us closer to reality with its non-judgmental and clever narration,” the jury panel stated.  Danish filmmaker Christian Einshøj’s ‘The Mountains’ took home two awards for the Best International Feature and Best International Emerging Filmmaker categories, making it the festival’s biggest winner.
