El Gouna Film Festival's newly established Short Film Lounge provides filmmakers and industry professionals a dedicated space to fully immerse themselves in a carefully curated selection of exceptional short films, each serving as a testament to the richness and diversity of Arabic cinema.
The lounge serves as a launchpad for emerging voices, where festival programmers, savvy film distributors, forward-thinking producers, and discerning buyers can spot and champion the next generation of Arab filmmakers.
From October 15th to the 20th, these cinematic gems, carefully chosen for the Short Film Lounge, will come to life within the festival's vibrant hub, offering an exclusive preview of the region's most promising talent. The selected films will also remain accessible online to industry professionals for an extended month beyond the festival's culmination.
These films are not part of the GFF Official Competition for Short Films. This private lounge is exclusive for CineGouna Market exhibitors and industry professionals.
