Award for the Best Pitch at Sunny Side

We feel very honored! Our upcoming film “Fatma Said – Reviving A Forgotten Treasure” (directed by Ralf Pleger) was awarded for the “Best Arts & Culture Pitch” at the international market Sunny Side of the Docs 2023. This is a great motivation and support for the last months of the financing phase.

Jury citation

“This is a project we want to see on screens because it tells a story that bridges the gap between the past and present, classical and contemporary cultures, and the Arabic and Western worlds. The main character is compelling as she serves as a true ambassador for her generation. The pitch was well-prepared and successfully involved the character in the presentation, showcasing her deep involvement in the entire project.”
