"The poster focuses on the red curtain that characterizes theatre, spotlight – hence light design – and an actor," the SITFY explained

The festival's poster was designed by Hisham Ali, who said that the number eight – representing the eighth edition – is visually distinctive. He explained how he used a spotlight to mimic its shape, creating contrasts between light and shadow.

Held annually, the SITFY is the first festival of its kind to be organised in Sinai. It was launched with the aim of providing opportunities to young theatre practitioners while decentralising the artistic scene and reviving tourism in South Sinai.

The SITFY's founder and president is Mazen El-Gharabawy, and the artistic director is Ingy El-Bastawi.

Veteran actress Samiha Ayoub is SITFY’s honourary president and actor Mohamed Sobhy is the president of SITFY’s higher committee.

The festival is held under the auspices of the Minister of Culture Nevine El-Kilani, and South Sinai Governor Khaled Fouda.

This year’s festival will run 25-30 November.
