Mon, Feb. 5, 2018
CAIRO – 5 February 2018: The 2nd edition of Aswan International Woman Film festival announced that this year’s edition will be honoring the name of the famous Algerian militant Djamila Bouhired. The festival will kick off from February 20 to February 26

The festival released its 2nd edition poster designed by Tamer Ragab. The poster is a white rectangular space dominated by the face of a girl inside a large vacuum.
This face, which is representative of women in general, is made up of pictures of Aswan. The images were mixed in a way to show the imagination and charm of cinema and the dreams of the Egyptian women. Accompanying the text at the bottom is a portrait of the sculptor Dgamila Bouhired.

The festival is currently receiving applications for the following workshops:

• Script Workshop supervised by scriptwriter, Naser Abdel Rahman.
• Documentary Film Workshop supervised by director, Aida El Kashef.
• Cartoon Workshop supervised by Dr. Ashraf Mahdy.
• Film Workshop supervised by Dutch director, Rosh Abdel Fatah.
• Cinema picture Workshop supervised by director, Marieke Van Der Lippe.

The 2nd Aswan Women International Film Festival will be held with the support of the Ministries of Culture and Tourism and the sponsorship of the National Council for Women.
The festival's rules stipulate that long films (feature - documentary - motion) must not be less than 60 minutes, while short films (feature - documentary - motion) are not to be more than 30 minutes long.

Accordingly, films that do not meet these conditions will be screened in the official section outside the competition. The 2nd edition will honour the famous Egyptian star Mona Zaki, the Egyptian director Attiat el-Abnoudy, the director, the producer Marian Khoury and the costume designer Nahed Nasrallah.
