The Egyptian cinema and drama industry is experiencing a major crisis as many filmmakers tend to shoot their works outside Egypt, such as producer Mohamed Hefzy, who is currently shooting his films abroad. We have a state of lack of love for cinema, and officials’ lack of belief in the importance and role of cinema in stimulating tourism. This is because these fees are very high and exorbitant and limit the use of high-end tourist places in Egypt and their appearance in our films. This is why the exported image of Egyptian cinema is limited to slums and small neighborhoods. This type of films that served Egyptian tourism cannot be made now because of this exaggeration.
