The censorship committee of the Cairo International Film festival has rejected three of the 60 films it has reviewed so far, the Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported on Wednesday.

The three films were denied permission to appear at the festival due to their themes of sex, homosexuality, adultery, and nudity.

At previous festivals, the censorship committee accepted films containing nudity and sex but only critics and journalists could watch them.

The 35th Cairo International Film Festival is set to take place later this year.
