The Panorama of the European Film will open its 11th edition on 7 November, and will run for 11 days in Cairo and nine other Egyptian cities.

This edition will present over 60 films – a larger number from last year – selected from the latest award-winning European feature and documentary films, as well as timeless classics.

Screenings will take place at Zawya’s new premises in Downtown’s Cinema Karim, Cairo's Zamalek Cinema, and out of Cairo in Alexandria, Ismailia, Port Said, Assiut, Damietta, Mansoura, Minya, Qena and Zagazig.

The Polish film Cold War will open the festival in a private event. The film is directed by Pawel Pawlikowski and stars Jonanna Julig and Tomasz Kot.

Set during the 1950s Cold War between Poland, Yugoslavia, Berlin and Paris, the 2018 film is shot in black and white and depicts an impossible love story between two people from very different backgrounds.

It won the Pawlikowski the award for Best Director at Cannes, where it was also nominated for the Palme d’Or, and went on to win seven other festival awards including the Ghent Film Festival’s Grant Prix and the Audience Award. The film was screened in Egypt’s Gouna Film Festival and was nominated for the Golden Star for Best Film.

Panorama will run between 7 and 22 November
