Rough Cut Screening 2019 Selection Announced

In 2019 we have three slots scheduled for feedback sessions that run parallel to the rest of the DC program. Each session is attended by three or more experts and a facilitator to advise on different aspects of the film project such as: dramaturgic and creative aspects, legal or production aspects, technical areas and marketing and distribution.

2019 projects were selected  in partnership with Sudan Film Factory and Zawya Distributions

  • “The Day I Ate The Fish” by Aida El-Kashef
  • “The Art Of Sin”  by Ibrahim Mursal
  • “My Mohammed Is Different” by Ines Marzouk

All three directors and two producers will attend the DC’19 from 15-17 April, and screen their film each in a tailor-made closed session to a group of international expert consultants.
