Statement of Jiří Menzel for the festival in Sharm el-Sheikh.
Dear filmmakers and film funs,
I think this is nice, that finally you will have a festival of Arab &European films in Sharm El-Sheikh. And what is
even nicer is, that you invited me to this festival. I have been in Egypt twice, it was many years ago on the retrospective of my films. I did not have a big chance to see many films produced in Egypt and in the countries around, so this is one of the reasons I am looking forward to be able to come to your festival in Sharm El-Sheikh. I hope we all will enjoy it.
