Training and preparation for the Jury Pitch
The Nominees participated in the Project Lab, which took place in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Cairo and Misr International Films from 23 to 30 October, 2019 in Cairo and Dahshur. The first day was devoted to getting to know each other and giving feedback on the nominated projects. Then the teams worked in intensive individual consultations with mentors during two days. In the evenings there was time to discover Cairo downtown. The second part at the Dahshur Residence tackled issues related to international co-production in group or team sessions with several experts from the film industry. The obligatory visit to the Dahshur Pyriamds was not missed out. The teams are now working on their dossiers, which they must submit by the end of December to be forwarded to the international Film Prize jury.
