2019 Edition

Tiny marks

In 2019, MedFest-EG will be about the wellbeing of the future generations by focusing on children health. Across the dierent generations that we have witnessed and belong to, child care has gone through some enormous developments in terms of the modern age approach to child psychiatry, upbringing and disease management.

We plan to screen films that discuss children’s mental and physical health and portray them in realistic, humane narratives on screen. In line with our belief in the power of Art and Cinema, we want to inaugurate an informed discussion between filmmakers, young doctors and healthcare professionals and the general public, about the little ones whose world is larger than we can ever imagine.

According to Campas – central agency for public mobilization and statics, Over one third of the population in Egypt is below the age of 14. We believe that children deserve our attention and awareness of their mental and physical health issues. It is our social responsibility at MedFest-EG to build a bridge between the aected populations, health care professionals, and filmmakers to honestly discuss such issues in film and extend our outreach to parents, educators and child facilitators.

We, at MedFest-EG, are all working hard to reach this goal and would definitely need support not just to hold our main screening events, but also to broaden the horizon of the parallel program.

We plan to extend our events to an all-year program of screenings, performances and workshops in children hospitals, schools and NGOs working with children with special needs and those in underprivileged areas in various cities across Egypt.

Through this edition we hope to spark the beginning of a different kind of conversation about children health that would last well beyond 2019.
