Film My Design (FMD)
Film My Design (FMD) – the first and only design film festival in the MENA region – takes place in Cairo, Egypt. Leveraging Egypt’s strong and long-standing connections with the film world, the festival’s mission centers on the telling of inspiring, engaging, and thought-provoking stories related to design, architecture, and urban life using the medium of film, the most universal language for visual storytelling. Film My Design was established in 2018 and held a highly successful first edition at Zawya (Cinema Karim) in the heart of downtown Cairo in February 2019. It hosted an exhibition, nine talks, and panel discussions as well as screenings of five local and four international films in collaboration with the Milano Design Film Festival (MDFF).
