Here Is Why You Shouldn’t Miss the 11th Panorama of the European Film in Egypt!
Yesterday, the official page of the Panorama of the European Film announced the full schedule of this year’s movies in Cairo and it got us super excited and we’re already marking our calendars!
The 11th edition sounds super interesting for all the right reasons, be it the movies, the masterclasses, or the workshops.
You definitely should have heard about the Panorama of the European Film before, but if you haven’t, let us enlighten you. It launched way back in 2004 and it’s an annual 11-day film event, showcasing some of the latest award-winning feature and documentary films as well as cinematic landmarks and classics from all over Europe.
The 11th edition’s full program will take place in Zawya’s new home in Karim Cinema and in the iconic Zamalek Cinema. Nevertheless, there will be other screenings taking place at the French Institute in Cairo, and the German Institute in Egypt. Moreover, there will also be screenings in Alexandria, Ismailia, Port Said, Assiut, Damietta, Mansoura, Menya, Qena, and Zagazig.
The annual event draws much less attention than it deserves! If you’re a cinema enthusiast or you work in the industry, you definitely need to take advantage of the panorama. I certainly love commercial Hollywood movies, but there is no doubt that every film lover needs to watch more of the artistic beautiful European movies that we miss out on because of the language barrier and their inferior marketing than their American counterparts.
All the non-English movies will have subtitles, so you won’t have to worry about that.
This year’s event will take place between the 7th and 17th of November and the pre-booking starts on the 4th of November. Press passes cost EGP100, student passes cost EGP200, and cinema industry passes cost EGP250. These passes give free access to the morning screening times; 10:30 AM, 1:00 PM, and 4:00 PM.
