Orumieh, Sept 15, IRNA- The Iranian short film, 'My clayey conception', will be screened in the 37th Vancouver International Film Festival.

The film was produced in West Azarbaijan Province of Iran which is well-known for producing award-winning short films.

'My clayey conception' which is directed by Zanyar Muhammadineko is about the diaries of a potter.
