Renowned Egyptian producer and screenwriter Medhat El-Adl is set to attend the 12th edition of the International Film Festival in Dakhla. El-Adl will be a jury member for the "Dakhla Project," a new initiative that highlights the festival's Moroccan, African, and Arab dimensions. The "Dakhla Project" aims to provide financial and educational support to long-film projects in development, whether they are fictional or documentary. It targets producers and directors residing in the Arab world, Africa, or the diaspora.

The jury for the "Dakhla Project" will evaluate ten film projects from Senegal, Côte d'Ivoire, Canada, Morocco, Tunisia, and Egypt. This specialized international committee includes Moroccan director Farida Benlyazid, Ouagadougou Festival delegate Alex Moussa Sawadogo from Burkina Faso, Senegalese director Moussa Touré, and Egyptian writer and screenwriter Medhat El-Adl.

The festival, running from June 3 to 9, will also welcome veteran Moroccan actress Sanae El Aloui as a guest. El Aloui, who lived in France and studied cinema in Paris and theater at the prestigious Cours Florent, has participated in over forty productions in multiple languages, including French, Spanish, English, German, and Arabic. Among her notable roles are leading parts in the foreign films "A Hunter Catches a Woman" and the Spanish film "Basque de Sylvia."

El Aloui’s Moroccan film credits include "Wad Al-Ward," directed by Lahcen Zinoun, for which she won Best Actress at the Tangier National Film Festival and the New Talent award in Rome. Recently, she has ventured into screenwriting. Moroccan audiences have seen her in two major roles in the series "Between the Palaces" and "Dreams of Girls," both of which aired on MBC5 last Ramadan and received high viewership ratings.
