Gouna Film Festival Moments We Will Never Forget From Over the Years
In a few days, we will get to find out more details about the fourth edition of El Gouna Film Festival 2020. It was recently announced that it will be held on 23rd of October. We cannot deny that the festival, since its first year, has left a mark on a lot of people. There were a lot of memorable moments at El Gouna Film Festival that we keep looking back at every year and before we start seeing new ones, we wanted to share some of the most memorable GFF moments with you...
The Best El Gouna Film Festival Moments:
'3 Daqat', THE song for the first El Gouna Film Festival
I think that the moment the song came out with the voices of both Abu and Yousra, people knew this was going to be the song of the year and will not be forgotten for years to come. Abu’s joyful spirit, along with Yusra’s warm voice, gave it a special place in our hearts.
Honoring ‘El Zaeim’ Adel Emam at El Gouna Film Festival
Almost all of us have watched everything he’s ever made and we were over the moon to see the Egyptian legend being honored at a great festival like this. El Gouna Film Festival honoured the great Adel Emam at the first GFF with the Creative Achievement Award. The award was also presented to him by Yousra.
Sylvester Stallone and Mena Massoud join El Gouna Festival
I believe that no matter how much time passes, we will always remember the artists coming from around the world to join the festival. At the first GFF, we were surprised with the presence of the star Sylvester Stallone, and at the last one we were so excited to see the Canadian-Egyptian actor Mena Massoud.
