Luxor film festival to give Khaled Saleh’s name to its fourth session

Luxor African Film Festival (LAFF) administration has decided to name the fourth session of the festival after the deceased actor Khaled Saleh.
The session will start from 17-23 March.
Sayyed Fouad, the festival chief, said that giving Saleh’s name to the new session is a small contribution to perpetuate name of the deceased actor, who contributed to establishing the independent youth actors foundation, which organizes the festival.
“A book written by critic Tareq al-Shennawy on Khaled Saleh will be issued. There will be a documentary on his artistic works,” Fouad said adding that six of his movies and two short films will be screened during the festival.
There will be a symposium held on his performance and roles. Critics Samir Farid, Shennawy and Ola al-Shafeiy will take part in addition to his mates like Khaled al-Sawy, Mohamed Heneidy, Ahmed al-Saqqa, Hesham Mansour and others.
