As usual, the screening, which is free, will include a selection of films from around the world, including works from Portugal, Australia, Brazil, and Korea.

 Ihab ShakerThis year’s poster was designed by Ihab Shaker, which as the ASIFA-Egypt website notes, is the first time ASIFA-International chose “an artist from Africa or the Arab world” for this honor. Shaker began his career in Egypt in 1968, but also spent much of his career in France, where he worked for Paul Grimault.
