On her official Facebook page, Yousra wrote, “It is normal for festivals to indicate their plan to honor the artists they would like to honor, and to clarify the reasons for their choices for the honored personalities, but what I find strange, and has not happened before in any international or local festival, is to refer to people whom the festival will not be able to honor!”

She added, “Referring to me in this particular context cannot be understood well or positively as an artist that the festival seeks to celebrate, as you claim, but as a justification for a question that was not asked in the first place, neither from the journalist during the dialogue, nor between me and the festival administration, nor even from any other parties, Note that I have been honored and given awards, whether directly for myself or for my work, by more than 80 local and international bodies, and I do not need any justifications, whether to honor me or not. In which I am honored to be chosen next to a number of excellent filmmakers from all over the world.
Yousra explained, “This justification raises many question marks about the festival’s criteria for choosing the works of the filmmakers who are members of the committee, as the festival had previously chosen a film for the committee’s colleague and dear friend Hind Sabry, whom I am very proud of, and she also won the acting award, and they are all great and right choices, but I remind you in general not to choose anyone from the Supreme Advisory Committee, and with the same reasoning, the festival will not show any works by these filmmakers despite their importance!”
Yousra concluded, “I refuse to put my name in a wrong and completely unnecessary context, which led to this unacceptable and unacceptable contradiction. Note that many negative attitudes were repeated with me and others in the committee, which I did not stop at, in the context of my pride in the El Gouna Festival and my support for it from the first day But your last mistake cannot be tolerated, and it is totally rejected. This message is to clarify my position on this dialogue attributed to you, and I am confident in the ability of those responsible for the festival to realize the extent of the error in it.
The director of the El Gouna Film Festival had talked about the reason for not honoring the artist, Yousra, as one of the most prominent and influential artists over generations, not just one, and attributed the reason to that being on the Higher Advisory Committee of the El Gouna Festival.
