These days, the activities of the fifth session of the El Gouna Film Festival, which lasts for a week, are being held in a tourist resort near the Egyptian city of Hurghada.

As usual, the festival raises a wide debate on social media and raises questions about the importance of film festivals, and their impact on the Arab film industry.

We are also accustomed to this artistic forum to be an attractive event that attracts an audience that seemed more interested in commenting on the views of the artists than on the works presented.

Fire.. and cultural debates

But this year, there was talk and controversy about the festival before its launch and before the participating artists showed off their looks on the red carpet.
