Your Film Festival, YouTube's first film festival

Lebanese and Egyptian shorts finalists in YouTube film festival

Niam Itani and Ramy El-Gabry’s short films are among the 10 finalists in Your Film Festival, YouTube's first film festival

Lebanon’s Super. Full. by Niam Itani and Egypt’s This Time by Ramy El-Gabry have made it to the final of Your Film Festival, YouTube’s first film festival created by American director Ridley Scott.
Niam Itani’s 13-minute Super. Full. is a short live action movie filmed on location in Qatar about a poor disabled couple chasing a dream. The man promises to take his wife to a fancy hotel for her birthday dinner.
Ramy El-Gabry’s This Time tells the urban legend of a son abandoning his mother to the kindness of strangers. The 11-minute film combines familiar vignettes of Cairo life with slow and careful cinematography.
