THE LOCUST to compete in Vancouver

In the 41st edition of Vancouver International Film Festival (September 29th to October 9th, 2022 / Canada), Faeze Azizkhani’s THE LOCUST will attend the Vanguard Competition for First and Second Films.

THE LOCUST has been already an Official Selection entry at SXSW, Edinburgh and Split.

In a review on the film in Outtakemag, James Hanton writes, “The dream of being a filmmaker is often elusive, and when this journey is captured on film, it is overwhelmingly presented from a Eurocentric or American perspective. Iranian film director Faeze Azizkhani’s The Locust shows that this dream can take hold all over the world, and for all the particular hurdles different places can throw up, some struggles – money, authorship, and creative differences – will be found anywhere. The Locust is a film about ambition, opportunity, and disappointment, capably led by the impressive Hanieh Tavassoli and Pegah Ahangarani, who bring this small-scale drama to life.”
