Iranian farmer awarded Golden Panda at Wildscreen Festival

Ilam, Oct 20, IRNA – A Golden Panda at Wildscreen Festival in the British city of Bristol went to an Iranian farmer, who guided a documentary-maker team.

Mahmoud Mansouri was the local leader of a team producing “In the realm of the spider-tailed viper”, a documentary about one of the world’s most unique and rarest vipers living in southwestern Iran.

Wildscreen Festival is known as the wildlife Oscars.

As the British embassy in Tehran refused to issue visa for Mansouri to participate in the event, the producer of the film received the Panda on behalf of him.
