Written and directed by Ahmed Amer, the feature film Kiss Me Not (Balash Tebusni) will have its Egyptian premiere at the Aswan International Women Film Festival (AIWFF), which takes place between 20 and 26 February.

Kiss Me Not will be the festival's closing film, to be screened on 26 February.

"This comes after the film's teaser trailer received almost half a million views on Facebook. The trailer shows audience reactions to the film during a secret screening showing mixed feelings of tension and hysterical laughter," the film's distributor MAD Solutions writes in the press release.

The world premiere of Kiss Me Not was screened in the Arabian Nights programme at the 14th Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) in December 2017.

Kiss Me Not follows a young and ambitious Egyptian director who faces challenges while shooting a kissing scene in his new film because the lead actress, Fajr, decides to pursue a more religious personal path.

The film stars Yasmin Raeis, Mohamed Mahran, and Salwa Mohamed Ali, and guest starring actress Sawsan Badr, late director Mohamed Khan, and director Khairy Beshara.
