CAIRO - 17 October 2020: Peter Webber will be leading the Feature Narrative Film Competition jury at the fourth edition of El Gouna Film Festival.
When it comes to creating visually ravishing, intelligent films, Webber has been a designated expert. The British director has helmed several acclaimed titles that have positioned him as a masterful storyteller.
Be it his breakout debut ‘The Girl with a Pearl Earring’ (2003) or ‘Hannibal Rising’ (2007), his work is multifaceted, and evident of how skilled he is in letting his films wear their hearts on their sleeves. The Feature Narrative Film Competition jury will house great artistic minds such as Sudanese director Amjad Abu Alala and Egyptian actor Asser Yassin.
Under the theme The Culture of Dreams, GFF is unveiled the official posters designed for its upcoming 4th edition.
El Gouna, the anchor of the festival, rolls out the red carpet this year for its spectacular and visionary landmark edifice, theGouna Conference and Culture Center (GCCC).
The poster is indeed inspired by the design of the Gouna Conference and Culture Center, which features an elegant series of barrel vaults enclosing the auditorium with a shaded perimeter layer where the inside and outside merge, creating an atmosphere of transcendent inspiration.
For this edition, the choice of visuals in the posters represent the wide spectrum of voices and talents that bring the MENA region dreams to life in the form of inspired artistic works.
In these uncertain times, GFF has risen to the challenges and reimagined its 4th edition to safeguard the health of all participants, adapt its venues and procedures to the new global reality, and still inspire and encourage artists to stay dreaming.
The festival is set to take place in the Red Sea town of El Gouna from October 23 to 31, 2020, while the activities of CineGouna Platform (CGP)—the industry arm of the festival—will be held from October 25 to 29, 2020.
