When we’re born, will it win an international film award

Directed and co-written by Tamer Ezzat, the film was the last screenplay written by the late Nadine Shams (1972-2014), winner of the best screenplay category at the 10th Malmo Arab Film Festival which took place last October.

The film had its world premiere at the 2019 El Gouna Film Festival and was also screened at the Carthage Film Festival in the same year; it was then released in Egyptian cinemas at the end of the year.

To date, no Egyptian film has ever made it to the final list of nominations for the international feature film category.

In recent years, Egyptian entries included Poisonous Roses by Fawzi Saleh, Yom El-Deen by Abu Bakr Shawky, Sheikh Jackson by Amr Salama, Clash by Mohamed Diab, Factory Girl by Mohamed Khan, Winter of Discontent by Ibrahim El-Batout, Lust by Khaled El-Hagar, among numerous others.
