The Cairo Creativity Centre will screen six short films by 16 participants from Egypt and Lebanon on Tuesday, 14 March.

The films are a result of an extensive workshop by Animation 8 Studio held between Cairo and Fayoum over six weeks, which covered practical and theoretical aspects of short filmmaking. Moderators of the workshop were Dr Souad Shawky, Dr Wael Saber, and Dr Ashraf Mohamed.

Some of the films are produced by first-time filmmakers.

The six films that will be screened cover different subjects and range from drama to documentary to experimental works.

The films are Bab (Door), Lahous, Habaya w Sigara w Kobayet Shay (A Pill, Cigarette and Cup of Tea), Babtaed Maarafsh aw Baarab (Am I Getting Closer or Further), Ward (Flowers) and Balad El-Habayeb (Land of the Beloved)

The screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers.
