Ahram Online, Wednesday 8 Aug 2012

This year's films will be competing under the following categories: international feature films, Arab feature films and human rights films. In parallel to the formal competition, there will be three supplementary subsections to the Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF), namely: a screening of world cinema, showcasing the most prominent international films of the year; a special look at Egyptian Cinema in the past two years; and a tribute to international and Arab filmmakers and actors.

"The aim of the Festival is to improve the taste in movies, to strengthen artistic links between countries, to allow meetings between professionals and to build bridges between workers in the field of cinema from different cultures and thus to promote the film industry in Egypt, the Arab world and other countries," according to the CIFF's official website.

The deadline for submissions is 31 August.
