You don't have to be in El Gouna to enjoy the festival.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you might have heard that a certain film festival in a certain Red Sea paradise has just kicked off quite spectacularly. We speak, of course, of El Gouna Film Festival, which this year is shaping up to be the biggest edition yet – and you only have to look at the red carpet coverage of last night’s opening ceremony for proof.
Beyond red carpet glamour, film screenings and masterclasses, the festival has become known for the hustle and bustle that surround it, as well as the communal and open atmosphere it breeds – something that Orange Egypt is contributing to this year, with some fun and quirky on-ground activities.
We’ll begin with possibly our favourite: a Pictionary-style game that will see the duo of Shadi Alfons and Khalid Mansour test your knowledge of cinema. You better come prepared, though, because the winner gets a special clackerboard (because who hasn’t always wanted to own one) and a director’s chair trophy to commemorate your win).
If you’re back in Cairo, don’t worry, you’re not missing out on the fun, because at in addition to being at the festival itself, Mall of Egypt and Citystars will hosts screens that allow fans to interact with celebrities on the red carpet - you can do everything from taking a selfie with them, to asking them what their favourite colour is, if you want, with Alfons and Mansour also on hand.
