Education & Cinema

Zawya is dedicated to screen art house films, as well as independent films from around the world, with a special focus on films for the young audience.

This program aims at nurturing the coming generation’s passion for cinema and also intends to teach them the virtues of debate and critical thinking in an ever changing Egyptian landscape. It encourages and promotes the efforts of teachers, educators and pedagogical experts on creating innovative teaching methodologies through the use of Cinema amongst other Medias, to accommodate the needs of modern day students. The films are screened in their original language, subtitled in English and/or Arabic, which is extremely interesting for linguistics purposes. This program will be operational as of March 2015 and the screening will take place in Zawya Cinema (Odeon), located in Downtown, during the 10AM and 1PM slots.
