An interview with Mohammed Hefzy, film producer and president of the Cairo International Film Festival. The interview was recorded at the end of the 40th edition of the festival, and we begin our chat by asking him whether he was satisfied with how the festival went, particularly that this was the first edition on which he served as president. Beyond this, despite the international annual event’s rich history, this edition of the Cairo International Film Festival has been discussed as a first, and he tells us why it may be seen in this way. Besides this, he goes over the challenges of organizing the festival, the ways in which the festival interacts with the local audiences and promotes film culture in Cairo and more.
