Countdown to the 9th Panorama of the European Film
Published in Ahram Online on 11 - 10 - 2016

The 9th Panorama of the European Film, which runs this year between 2 and 12 November, will bring a selection of the latest critically acclaimed and award-winning international films to Egypt's screening venues.
This year's line-up comprises some of the most important titles of the year, including The Unknown Girl, a film directed by the Dardenne Brothers which competed for the Palme D'Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
Other highlights of this year's line-up include Fire At Sea, a documentary by Italian director Gianfranco Rosi and centred on the European migrant crisis. The film scooped the Golden Bear Award at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival and is Italy's Best Foreign Language Film entry for the 2017 Academy Awards.
The list also includes The Wait by Italian film director Piero Messina and starring French actress Juliette Binoche. The film competed in the 72nd Venice International Film Festival.
Other films include Sieranevada by Romanian film director Cristi Puiu. The film was in the 2016 Cannes official competition and is the Romanian entry for Best Foreign Language Film for the 2017 Academy Awards.
Also screening this year is After Love by Belgian film director Joachim Lafosse and starring French-Argentine actress Bérénice Bejo. After Love was screened in the Directors' Fortnight section at the 2016 Cannes International Film Festival.
The 9th Panorama of the European Film will comprise eight sub sections, including the following sections from its previous editions: European Cinema section, Documentary Rendez-vous, Emerging Directors, Panorama Classics, Crossroads, and Carte Blanche.
Two new sections will be introduced to this year's edition. Among them is Urban Lens: Spotlight on Berlin, which will feature a selection of films “in which the city acts as both the medium and the subject. For this section's first edition, the city of Berlin will be highlighted through five pivotal films across various genres," reads the press release.
The second section is Panoranimation which will screen "a selection of the latest critically-acclaimed European animation films."
In Cairo, the two main screening venues will be Zawya Cinema and Karim Cinema.
A selection of this year's films will also screen at the Goethe-Institute, the Italian Institute and the French Institute in Mounira. More information about other screening venues in Cairo and across Egyptian cities will be available soon.
The Panorama of the European Film was launched in 2004 by co-manager of Misr International Films (MIF) Marianne Khoury.
It was the seed leading to the birth of Zawya, the art-house initiative launched by MIF in 2014 that screens an alternative selection of films all year round. Zawya's team is currently behind the organisation of the Panorama.
Building on past years' successful editions, the Panorama stands as a main pillar in Egypt's contemporary cinematic culture, bringing to Egyptian screens important award-winning films.
The Panorama of the European Film is co-funded by the European Union and is organised under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture and the Egyptian Film Centre.
*Ahram Online is a main media sponsor of The Panorama of the European Film and Zawya.
