The Cairo International Film Festival announced that its 43rd edition will be held December 1- 10.

“The programming team is enthusiastic this year to continue the challenge and present a distinguished artistic program that is no less good and attractive than the level that the festival fans and its guests are accustomed to in previous sessions,” said festival president Mohamed Hefzy.

He added, “Despite the exceptional circumstances imposed by the Coronavirus on the world since the beginning of last year, film festivals have been and remain a major outlet for filmmaking that has been affected by the outbreak of this epidemic and its cause of the closure of theaters around the world.

” Egypt recorded 209,677 cases of coronavirus since the start of the pandemic until Saturday, and 12,405 deaths.

The festival had organized its 42nd session at the end of 2020, with the participation of 95 films from about 40 countries, with great precautionary measures being followed, foremost of which was reducing the capacity of the exhibition halls to 50%.

In that session, the festival honored Egyptian screenwriter Waheed Hamed, British director Christopher Hampton and Egyptian actress Mona Zaki
