The past hours had witnessed many hot events behind the scenes of the festival, after a dispute of views occurred between Amir Ramses, artistic director, and Nathal Al-Tamimi, director of the festival, which led to Amir sending his resignation via e-mail to the festival management.
A site in Al-Fan learned that the leaking of the news of the resignation occurred from within the correspondence exchanged between the festival team, which put the El Gouna Film Administration in an embarrassing position, especially after some sites reported the news, which Amir Ramses refused to comment on, closed his phone and stayed in his room in a El Gouna hotel, refusing to communicate with anyone. .
The leaking of the news of the resignation put Amir Ramses in an embarrassing situation, which made him retract his decision, but he reconfirmed it again so as not to embarrass the festival management, after negotiations between him and Nasheel Al-Tamimi, the festival’s director, and the artist, Bushra, the director of operations.
The festival is preparing to issue an official statement shortly to clarify the circumstances of the matter, after agreeing on an acceptable formula for this resignation in a way that satisfies all parties.
