He also talks with us about its importance within the region’s film industry and the ways in which it connects with the local audience. To end it all, he shares with us a thought about the Youssef Cherif Rizkallah, the prominent and deeply influential Egyptian film critic who was a central figure in the history of the Cairo International Film Festival.
