LAFF 2017

Post by HEPZIBAH »

It's that time of year again - the Luxor African Film Festival

6th EDITION
16-22 March, 2017

http://luxorafricanfilmfestival.com/en/ ... 0of%20LAFF


Having just taken a very quick glimpse at some of the films entered there are quite a few I'd be interested in seeing. Think I'll have to make a list and see if I can get to see them at some point, somehow!

Just went onto the website and the first thing I see is that the all the financial prizes have been cancelled -

"Cancellation of the financial prizes of the 6th edition of LAFF
The administration of LAFF unfortunately was forced to announce the cancellation of all financial prizes for the 6th edition of Luxor African Film Festival due to a serious shortage in this edition's budget."

Spent about half an hour on that website but was completely unable to locate a program giving dates, times, places and prices for any of the many films.

But this is Egypt. They don't want anybody to find out how to attend anything!

Yesterday, I took screenshots of the program from LAFF's facebook or web page where it suddenly appeared. Today, I can only find it on Luxor Governorate facebook page:

Could this be something to do with there being no prizes? (serious question)

It has been the same, every single year.

If you go to one of the venues they usually have a full list of films, where they are being shown and at what time.
Rowing Club, Conference Centre or Culture Palace.

That's odd because I'm sure I saw a programme yesterday and it wasn't through facebook.
