The Cairo International Film Festival has been going strong since its inception in 1976. In addition to the regular competitions, tributes and controversial films, the 30th edition in 2007 includes a section dedicated to the latest political events in the Middle East.
With a strong cinematic tradition dating back to the early 1930s, Egypt has a very strong influence on the Arab world and Cairo is known as the "Hollywood of the Middle East".
