The Luxor African Film Festival (LAFF) is one of ISF’s projects. It was the writer Sayed Fouad’s idea, as the African films are almost not screened in Egypt. Furthermore, Luxor hardly has any cultural or artistic events, and was therefore selected to de-centralize cultural or artistic events always oraginzed in Cairo and Alexandria.
Though Luxor is the largest open-air museum in the world it was lacking artistic festivals. Its geographical position - in the very heart of Upper Egypt and hence closer to the rest of the African continent - gives the historic city a unique advantage .
Submissions deadline for LAFF2018 have been extended
The management of the 7th edition of the Luxor African Film Festival (#LAFF2018), to give the opportunity to a larger number of participants, decided to extend the deadline for submissions for films until December 31, 2017.
