Screenwriter Mohamed Hefzy Chooses Five Screenplays to Develop from the Art of Screenwriting Workshop

Yesterday, on the last day of the Art of Screenwriting workshop, screenwriter Mohamed Hefzy
hosted film critic Ahmed Shawky to talk about the different techniques of assessing a screenplay and the elements of a successful screenplay. Hefzy is moving to the workshop's second phase, which takes a maximum period of three months, where he will be choosing the best five screenplays to develop.

Together with Film Clinic, the workshop is organized in cooperation with the Arab Film Institute (AFI) and the Egyptian Cinema Syndicate, who granted free invitations to some
of the participants. The workshop was held at the Greek Campus - The American University
in Cairo (AUC) with a number of 90 participants.

Screenwriter Mohamed Hefzy and film critic Ahmed Shawky are currently taking part
in a writing fellowship program, organized by The Royal Film Commission Jordan - RFC, to supervise the development of five screenplays by Jordanian writers. This year, Hefzy
presented a seminar on screenwriting and a workshop on creative producing at the 1st Kuwait Film Festival (KFF). Through his company Film Clinic, he cooperated with American producer Nicolas Gonda (Voyage of Time - The Tree of Life) in delivering the Creative Production and Alternative Distribution workshop to encourage the emergence of talented Egyptian producers and support diversity in the Egyptian film industry.

Mohamed Hefzy studied Metallurgical Engineering in London. As a screenwriter, Hefzy
presented a collection of remarkable films to the Egyptian film industry such as El Selem Wel Teeban (Snakes And Ladders), Tito, Malaki Eskenderia (Private Alexandria), El Tourbini, 45Youm (45 Days), Aswar Al Aamar (Walls of the Moon) and Warda. In 2005, he founded his production house Film Clinic, through which he produced and co-produced many films including Hepta: The Last Lecture, Clash, Ali, the Goat and Ibrahim, Withered Green, Excuse My French, Villa 69, Rags and Tatters and My Brother TheDevil.
