Ali, the Goat and Ibrahim
                                   
 
Internationally appreciated; Ali, the Goat and Ibrahim tells the story of a man who believes that his dead girlfriend has been reincarnated as a goat, which he names Nada. At the healer’s clinic, Ali meets Ibrahim, and they are both diagnosed as being cursed.

Dreamaway
 
Directed by Marwan Omara and Johanna Domk, Dreamaway, which is making its India premier at Mumbai, is a documentary about a group of workers in a luxuries hotel in Sharm El Sheikh "forced to confront their future and their identity, lingering between the liberal, Western lifestyle of the town and the traditional culture they originate from."
 
The Egyptian cinema programme was designed by Egyptian critic Ahmed Shawky, the festival's consultant for MENA region.
