The organisers of El-Gouna Film Festival (GFF) have revealed the poster for the event's 4th edition, which is scheduled to take place in October 2020 in the Red Sea resort town of El-Gouna.
Following the theme The Culture of Dreams, the festival will be aligned with the opening of the new Gouna Conference and Culture Centre.
According to the GFF's official press release, "the poster is inspired by the design of the Gouna Conference and Culture Centre, which features an elegant series of barrel vaults enclosing the auditorium with a shaded perimeter layer where the inside and outside merge, creating an atmosphere of transcendent inspiration."
"For this edition, the visuals in the posters represent the wide spectrum of voices and talents that bring the MENA region’s dreams to life in the form of inspired artistic works."
One of the youngest major festivals in Egypt, the GFF was founded by businessman Naguib Sawiris and co-founded by Amr Mansy and actress Boushra, who also serves as the event's COO. The festival's director is Intishal El-Timimi.
The annual festival is held in a luxurious Red Sea resort town established by businessman Samih Sawiris.
The fourth edition of the El-Gouna Film Festival, which will take place from 23 to 31 October, will hold many of its activities at outdoor venues, including the opening and closing ceremonies, amid the “challenging circumstances” of the coronavirus pandemic.
To ensure social distancing, the festival will allow “less than half of the total capacity” at events inside cinemas, the festival organisers revealed.
The festival will also enhance its virtual capabilities to allow greater online participation.
