Landing a Second Screening outside of the Arab World
Warda Contends at Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival in Korea
Following a successfully lucrative commercial march in cinemas across the Arab world, the Egyptian thriller Warda contends as part of the World Fantastic Cinema section within the 19th Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (16-26 July).
The film traces a video blogger who returns to his Egyptian countryside home to document and investigate strange happenings that have been disturbing his family since the death of his father.
Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival will host Warda's second screening outside of the Arab world following its presence in the European Film Market of the 65th Berlin International Film Festival, the world's major film market hub, through the 1st Arab Cinema Center organized by MAD Solutions.
Directed by Hadi El Bagoury and written by Scriptwriter/Producer Mohamed Hefzy, Warda is produced by Film Clinic and The Producers, in co-production with Aroma Pictures.
Distributed by MAD Solutions, Warda is the first film in the Arab filmmaking community to have its final cut revamped based on the audiences' remarks on the ending in a test screening held prior to its theatrical release. The film is also the first in the Arab world to be created in found-footage style and the first film to be released across 4 Arab countries at the same time.
