Cairo enjoys a reputation as the 'Hollywood of the Middle East', with a cinematic tradition dating back as far as the 1930s. The Cairo International Film Festival began in 1976 and is accredited by the same prestigious organisation that accredits the Cannes, Berlin, and Venice film festivals.

Held every year to high acclaim, the festival now faces increasing competition from other impressive events such as the Abu Dhabi, Marrakech, and Tel Aviv film festivals. The Cairo International Film Festival is a big event on the Egyptian calendar and usually attracts visitors from all over the world.
