Egypt to Inaugurate New Film Festival

The founding committee of the El Gouna Film Festival has announced the call for entries for the anticipated week-long event, which will kick-off on September 22 in El Gouna.

Under the slogan Cinema for Humanity, the occasion aims to foster cross-cultural exchange while celebrating the history of cinema.

As a result of collective efforts between film enthusiasts and private sponsors, the festival’s programme will present a wide selection of regional and international movies, film competitions and will host both established and emerging filmmakers.

“From its very first edition, the festival will be a not-to-be-missed annual rendezvous for film professionals and film lovers from Egypt, Arabic countries and indeed from all over the world. […], enthused, Intishal Al Timimi, director, El Gouna Film Festival.
