Iranian filmmaker Mehdi Moniri's Tinar is slated to be screened at the 30th Oulu International Children's and Youth Film Festival in Finland.
Moniri's award-winning documentary depicts four seasons in the life of a young shepherd, who spends a great part of the year alone working in the meadows of northern Iran.
The 72-minute film won the UNESCO Award in the 2nd edition of Asia Pacific Screen Awards in Australia for outstanding contribution to the promotion and preservation of cultural diversity.
Tinar has also been screened at numerous international events including, London's Open City Documentary Film Festival and Italy's 2011 Della Lessinia International Film Festival.
The Oulu International Children's and Youth Film Festival has established itself as a premier showcase for the high-profile Nordic and international children's and youth cinema since it was founded in 1981.
The 30th edition of the festival will be held from November 21 to 27, 2011.
