Egyptian Shorts

Show Ended

As part of the Cinema Hall's goal to screen short films from around the world, a screening will be dedicated to Egyptian short films on January 31. Egyptian cinema has been known as the pioneering industry in the Arab world. The first silent Egyptian film was produced in 1917, and the first talking movie, Zainab, was produced in 1923. 

Egyptian cinema was also the first in the Arab world to make short films, but they did not gain much popularity for several reasons, including the lack of the participation of well-known stars. The situation has changed recently, as we have selected a number of Egyptian short films that have won awards at international festivals, and some even feature professional actors. The upcoming screening will feature six short films produced between 2016 and 2021: "Nada" by Adel Ahmed Yehia, "The Circle" by Mohamed Al-Gohary, "Berries Island" by Khaled Mansour, "Ban Hour" by Ahmed Wafik, "From Inside” by Ramy El-Gabry, and “Zeina” by Ayman Abdel Hamid.
