25 January 2011, the day when the Egyptian revolution was born, flowers have bloomed in Egypt's streets. The Egyptian revolution is not just a revolution, it's a symbol of resistance, a vibe that everyone still feel when we walk downtown Cairo, you see it on the walls, on the faces of people and hear it in the unspoken words.
12 years passed since the glorious revolution of the 25th of January. We are bringing the memory of the revolution and let it live forever in the heart of film makers; that's why we make this film festival, you can submit your film in the festival as long as it fit with the criteria of the film genres and it has a revolutionary idea.
