I Still Hide to Smoke by Rayhana

The 17th edition of the Brussels Mediterranean Film Festival (Cinémamed) will take place from 1-8 December, boasting almost 70 films spanning all genres and shining a spotlight on the sheer diversity of films from the southern countries. It will also place the emphasis on females, painting a mixed and colourful portrait of Mediterranean women, and positioning female filmmakers centre stage. The aim is to “pay tribute to the women of today through movies in which they resist, create, overcome, demonstrate and dismantle stereotypes, and disrupt and alter our way of looking at things”. The 100% female jury will be chaired by Egyptian director-producer Marianne Khoury, and will include Belgian actresses Stéphanie Crayencour and Anne Paulicevich.
