18 Days, a collaborative film that revolves around different aspects of the January 25 Revolution, will have its Middle East premiere at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival (13 October-22 October).

The film, which had its world premiere at this year’s Cannes Festival, consists of ten short film by ten different filmmakers, each with its own take on Egypt’s revolution that ousted Hosni Mubarak.

Filmmakers involved in the project include Youssry Nasrallah, Kamla Abou Zikry, Ahmed Abdallah, Sherif El-Bendary and Mariam Abou Ouf.

Controversy surrounded the film when it was screened in Cannes because two of the filmmakers participated in Egypt's 2005 presidential campaign, which led to suspicions of political bias.
