CAIRO - 21 February 2019: On the sidelines of the opening ceremony of Aswan International Women's Film Festival's third session, Ambassador Mervat Talawi said, “I am very pleased with the festival's third edition, which focuses on all the aspects that matter to women."

“Women are one of the solid elements of Egypt’s progression," continued Talawi, chairman of the Board of Trustees of the festival.

Talawi further affirmed that the celebrities attending the festival are among the main elements of enlightening the Egyptian society, working to bring it back to its former solid cultural and educational position, and erasing all the dark Salafist culture that invaded the classy Egyptian society in recent years.

In addition, Talawy thanked during her speech Egyptian Minister of Culture, Inas Abdel Dayem, for providing all the necessary support for the Aswan International Women’s Film Festival.

Talawi asserted that the role of women in any society surpasses the role of men, as women play a significant role in upbringing and supporting the members of any society.

Furthermore, Talawi stated that more light should shed on female artistic contributions; she stressed the necessity of avoiding showing scenes of domestic abuse or humiliation of women to protect women’s respectable and precious image.

In a different context, actress Menna Shalabi expressed her deep happiness after being honored in the opening ceremony of Aswan’s International Women’s Film Festival's third edition, affirming that Aswan has been the closest city to her heart since her childhood.
