I was invited as member of the international jury of the Tehran International Animation Festival, from February 29 to March 11 2017. Apart from jury duty that allowed me to be in contact with the abundant and high quality iranian production, the week was quite exciting for me. First there was an exhibition of drawings from my «Tropismes» series and an hour long interview on the educationnal network of Iranian TV.
Finally, I had the wonderful surprise to be awarded a special homage prize for fifty years of carreer, by M. R. Karimi Saremi, director of the festival. The prize came with a trophy and an authentic persian rug.
