The renovations wrapped up on Wednesday at the Gouna Conference and Culture Centre, the main venue of the El Gouna Film Festival (GFF), after a fire broke out before the 5th edition was set to kick off.

El Gouna workers repainted the burnt structure of the main hall.

The opening ceremony of the 5th edition El Gouna Film Festival is still on course and slated to take place on Thursday at El Gouna Resort-town in the Red Sea governorate.

For five years running, GFF has been paving the road to all keen filmmakers, aspiring young talents, and enthusiastic cinephiles that may partake in its culture of nurturing dreams and turning visions into reality.

The festival began as a project of passion for art, culture, and most importantly filmmaking. Each edition has become a personal milestone for filmmakers across the region.

This year, GFF is celebrating its milestone by carrying on with its commitment to foster communication between culture and filmmaking.

The festival is taking inspiration from its surroundings between architecture and nature, and honoring telling human stories with filmmakers from all around the world.
