This year marks the 11th round of the Panorama of European Film (7-17 November), an annual event that film buffs impatiently anticipate, writes Soha Hesham. Launched in 2004 by the Zawya Art House, the event provides a carefully curated programme of award-winning and significant art house films from Europe. Starting in Cairo, it has proved so successful it expanded to other cities in Egypt. Zawya director, producer-filmmaker Marianne Khoury announced the event at the downtown Karim Cinema, the new Zawya headquarters, last Wednesday.
This year the Panorama features films from 26 countries including Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Italy, Holland, Portugal, Ukraine, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany and Iceland. The programme, selected by a committee that brought together filmmaker Abu Bakr Shawky (Yomeddine), cinematographer Abdel-Salam Moussa and screenwriter Mariam Naoum, includes seven sections: Main Narrative Features, Emerging Directors, Documentary Rendez Vous, Carte Blanche, Ingmar Bergman Retrospective and, newly introduced, Surrealist Cinema and Children and Family.
