Egypt today 19 October 2020

Egyptian short film ”Al Khad Al Akhar” (The Other Cheek) to compete in the short film competition of El Gouna Film Festival’s fourth edition.
After Nashaat’s daughter is viciously attacked by the neighbors’ dog, he is pained to hear rumors that she provoked the attack.
Reading the accusatory article aloud to his manipulative ex-wife only leads to a heated confrontation and the father’s irritation grows.
Seeing his daughter disfigured after the brutal incident, Nashaat has a hard time turning the other cheek.
The hurt and angry father sees no other way but to take his frustrations out on the perpetrator, even if it means acting against his nature and beliefs. The 11 minute short film is directed by Sandro Canaan.

Under the theme The Culture of Dreams, GFF unveiled the official posters designed for its upcoming 4th edition.

El Gouna, the anchor of the festival, rolls out the red carpet this year for its spectacular and visionary landmark edifice, theGouna Conference and Culture Center (GCCC).
The poster is indeed inspired by the design of the Gouna Conference and Culture Center, which features an elegant series of barrel vaults enclosing the auditorium with a shaded perimeter layer where the inside and outside merge, creating an atmosphere of transcendent inspiration.
For this edition, the choice of visuals in the posters represent the wide spectrum of voices and talents that bring the MENA region dreams to life in the form of inspired artistic works.

In these uncertain times, GFF has risen to the challenges and reimagined its 4th edition to safeguard the health of all participants, adapt its venues and procedures to the new global reality, and still inspire and encourage artists to stay dreaming.
The festival is set to take place in the Red Sea town of El Gouna from October 23 to 31, 2020, while the activities of CineGouna Platform (CGP)—the industry arm of the festival—will be held from October 25 to 29, 2020.
