Abbas Taheri, Mahdieh Toosi
Abbas Taheri started his profession in his first year of studying cinema at the Tehran University of Art by making short films, which has continued since then. He has made five fiction shortfilms and six documentary short films, some of which have been screened and received awards in Iranian and international festivals. The obvious point in his works is an artistic effort to find his style of telling local but global stories, expressing his ideas about life, existence, and death. Mahdieh Toosi was born in 1982 in Iran. She graduated from the Sooreh University of Art in Film Directing. She attended the Masterclass of Filmmaking under the supervision of Abbas Kiarostami at the Karnameh Institute. She is now teaching screenwriting at the Sooreh University of Art and participated as the scriptwriter and script consultant in short film projects.
