  • In Photos: CIFF 2018 Comes To An End & the Glam is Still On

    It was an amazing ending for a festival filled with masterpieces and artists getting honoured for their work. Artists from across the MENA region, and all around the world, were commended for their creations, as was a very special guest, British actor and director, Ralph Fiennes. Fiennes received the Faten Hamama Honorary Award, and presented the MENA premiere of his third directorial effort, the Cold War thriller: White Crow. The movie is set around the defection from the Soviet Union of legendary ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev.

    Among the many guests honoured at the festival, director Ahmed Fawzy Saleh’s film won several awards: the $15,000 Horizons of Arab Cinema Competition Best Arab Film award; the Salah Abu Seif Special Jury award; and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Award. It seemed like the perfect, glamorous, magical ending to an enchanting festival.
