The El-Gouna Film Fes­ti­val has been pushed back one month and will now run from Oct. 23- Oct.31, or­ga­niz­ers an­nounced this week. This de­ci­sion was made in line with the global health and safety mea­sures amid the coro­n­avirus crisis.

“Sev­eral film fes­ti­vals have been im­pacted by the on­go­ing global Covid-19 pan­demic and their re­turn to the scene will send a pos­i­tive sig­nal that the world is on its way to nor­malcy,” fes­ti­val di­rec­tor In­tishal Al-Tim­imi said in a re­leased state­ment.

Egyp­tian ac­tress Bushra Rozza, who is also the co-founder of the fes­ti­val, said the or­ga­niz­ers are con­stantly look­ing at how they “may adapt to the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion and con­tinue to play their roles in de­vel­op­ing the in­dus­try re­gion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally.”
