Founded by Egyptian director Waheed Sobhi, Cine4All Fest, which will launch its first edition this December, is an Egyptian film festival for documentaries, short films, and music videos. The festival includes an award ceremony and film screenings, aiming to provide a platform for directors in Egypt and the Arab world.

About Before We Heal:
Saleem and Raya meet at Raya's place. Saleem enters the toilet and somehow gets stuck. Between the inside and the outside, trials and disappointments, laughter and hope, memories and screams, are all being shared at the doorstep.

Written and directed by Nadim Hobeika, Before We Heal stars Yumna Marwan, Mohammad Bsat and Elie Njeim. The film's crew includes Cinematographer Céline Layous, Editor Nathalie Rbeiz, and Composer Jean Nassif. The film is distributed in the Arab world by MAD Solutions.

It also screened at many international festivals including; the Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF), Carthage Film Festival (JCC), and landed its premiere in Aegean Film Festival in Greece, and Malmo Arab Film Festival (MAFF)

About The Band:
The film tells the story of Hulm Band that is made up of six musicians who are playing Sufi music in Iraq. They only face one dilemma, which lies in the fact that they can get murdered for playing music in their city, Sadr, where music is forbidden. In 67 minutes, the film follows the band members as they open up to the film’s director, Albaqer Jafeer, on their dreams, aspirations, and the reality
Written and directed by Albaqer Jafeer, The Band is distributed in the Arab world by MAD Solutions.
