Alexandria Film Festival
From: Thursday, September 27 2007, 8:30 am
to: Sunday, September 30 2007, 5:30 pm
Organised by the Egyptian Association of Film Writers and Critics, the Alexandria Film Festival aims to broaden film culture and strengthen the relationships between filmmakers throughout the world.
Although films from all countries are welcome, the festival places particular focus on Mediterranean productions. Entries are organised into two main sections: Competition and Out of Competition, with the former solely dedicated to feature films from Mediterranean countries.
The 2005 festival awarded the first prize for best movie to Spanish production The Sea Side, while Arnoud Desplechin (Kings and Queen, France) won the prize for best director.
