Sun Jun 19, 2022


El Gouna Film Festival (GFF) announces the postponement of its 6th edition, which was scheduled to be held October 13-20, 2022, in El Gouna, Egypt on the Red Sea.

In view of the vital role played by GFF in the art and tourism sectors, both locally and internationally, in view of current global challenges, and with the consequent need to develop an integrated strategy that will live up to the growing expectations of the festival as a leading platform for film, art, and culture, the decision was made to postpone the festival.

Since its inaugural edition in 2017, GFF has strived to become the leading cinematic platform in the region. Thus, GFF’s management has indicated that the next edition will stem from this objective. A long list of invitees will be compiled to ensure all generations and nationalities interested in the film business, of which Egypt has been at the forefront of in the Arab region, can share their experiences.

This decision will allow more time to focus on both the artistic and organizational side of upcoming editions, while strengthening GFF’s ability to play its leading role and contribute to the development of the film industry regionally and internationally.

The festival’s organizing committee will announce the preparation and development for the 6th edition periodically in the coming months.
