16th Third Eye Asian Film Festival: III

16th Third Eye Asian Film Festival: III Of the 10 feature films screened at the 16th Third Eye Asian Film Festival (TEAFF) during the first three days, I caught four and opted out of a fifth because I had seen it, albeit decades ago. Two of these were Indian, one Egyptian and one from Taiwan-Myanmar. Ziprya, based on the Arun Sadhu novel and chosen as the inaugural film, was big let-down. Made in amateurish style, full of tropes and stock screenplay, it did great disservice to the memory of ...

After The Battle: a Film Review

user
    Xan Brooks from The Guardian says, "Veteran director Yousry Nasrallah makes a melodrama out of a crisis in After The Battle, a film hewn from the headlines of the Egyptian revolution that crash-lands in the Cannes competition on the basis of its urgent topicality, a heart-on-sleeve narrative, and not a whole lot else. Try as I might, I can't see it troubling the judges."A producer from the Short Film Corner at the 65th Cannes Film Festival said that it was a g...

Cairo International Film Festival president, Dr Ezzat-Abou-Ouf, talks to Jeremy Colson about this year's festival and his hopes for the future.  CAIRO ~ 20 November 2009 Could you tell us a bit about yourself, your background?

"The Mummy" lives on, thanks to Scorsese

user
Shadi Abdel Salam (1930–1986)   CAIRO ~ Though Martin Scorsese had to cancel his visit to Egypt at the last moment, his presence was strongly felt at the Cairo International Film Festival here on Wednesday night when the classic version of The Mummy was screened. If it hadn't been for Scorsese this Egyptian classic might have just crumbled into obscurity, as has much of this country's history But as the result of financial support from the Martrin Scorsese...

Cairo movie buffs distracted by the beautiful game

user
  CAIRO ¬ The joke going around Cairo today is that the Algerian Tribute in the city's international film festival will be withdrawn if the Algerian football team beats Egypt in this Saturday's crunch game. It is only a joke, but the fact is that even the most ardent of Egypt's film buffs are focused on the crucial world cup qualifier that will see one or the other country through to the World Cup finals in South Africa next year. Punters have commented that the orga...
