The Cairo International Film Festival has launched its first Cairo Film Connection in partnership with the Egyptian Film Centre and Misr International Films. The Cairo Film Connection aims to increase co-production of films originating in the Arab world.

Ten scripts are competing for a LE100,000 ($17,000) prize offered to pre-production phase projects while two projects in post-production compete for extra funding for completion.
The jury, comprising European and Egyptian filmmakers, considered 35 film scripts before narrowing the list down to 10.

The works will be discussed by the filmmakers and experts on production, funding, distribution, marketing, broadcasting and sales for a period of three days until 7 December on the second floor of the Sofitel Gezira Hotel.
