Ahram Online , Wednesday 12 Jan 2022

The organisers of Zawya's Short Film Festival revealed the poster for the event's upcoming sixth edition.


Cairo's art-house cinema Zawya revealed that the poster was designed by Amr Hosny for the festival that is scheduled to take place between 10 and 12 February.

According to Zawya, the upcoming edition "was made possible with the support of the festival’s esteemed partners, Misr International Films, Red Star, New Century Production and Film Clinic."

Zawya Shorts has been an annual festival since 2015 with the aim of supporting and giving a platform to Egyptian filmmakers' short films. Taking place in January or February each year, the 2020 edition of the festival was suspended due to restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Over the past years, the festival has shed light on numerous talents and distributed prizes to the best works, including Red Star Films' Best Film Award, Misr International Films' Best Director Award, Film Clinic Jury Prize, New Century Productions Audience Award as well as the Dahshur Residence Best Script, which grants the winner free participation in any of the Dahshur workshops.

The prizes, jury members and participating films for this year’s edition are yet to be revealed.

The festival's previous editions screened between 15 and 30 films.
