The Ismailia International Film Festival for documentaries and short films has announced the call for entries for its 17th round, scheduled to run from 3 to 8 June 2013. The deadline for submission is 31 March.

This year, the festival will also be hosting the second Coproduction Platform, the first forum in the Arab world to be entirely dedicated to documentaries. Through the platform, documentary filmmakers have a chance to meet specialists, sales representatives and funders, enabling them to bring their projects to the light.

Filmmakers from around the world are eligible to apply to participate; however, projects must be related to the Arab world in some way. The filmmaker, filming location or topic must be Arab, and the project must be in its production or post-production phase. Application forms must be filled out in English.

The Ismailia International Film Festival is one of the oldest, most prestigious film festivals in Egypt and the first in the Arab world to specifically focus on documentaries and short films. It continues to be one of only three film festivals organised by the Egyptian Ministry of Culture.
