The San Francisco Film Society has selected Egyptian filmmaker Mohamed Diab for its fall 2013 Artist in Residence program - a program that brings a filmmaker to San Francisco for a two-week residency, which includes participating in each of the Film Society’s core areas - education, exhibition and filmmaker services, as well as a public screening,.


It also provides the artist with opportunities to connect with local filmmakers. 

Resident artists are selected based on their filmmaking experience, body of work and desire to share and collaborate with other emerging filmmakers and film students.


As part of his residency, Diab will present his latest work, film Cairo 678, network with local filmmakers and visit Bay Area high school and college classrooms.

The 2010 drama, which follows the lives of three women and their search for justice from the daily plight of sexual harassment in Egypt, is one of a handful of recent Egyptian films that shed light on and condemn sexism, misogyny, and challenge long-standing patriarchal systems of oppression in that country.

See other Egyptian dramas we've profiled like Scheherazade, Tell Me a Story, by Yousry Nasrallah, to start.

Cairo 678 is Diab's first and only feature film directorial effort.

While in Residency at SFFS, Diab will also participate in what is being referred to as an intimate artist talk, on Monday October 14, 5pm at FilmHouse (1426 Fillmore Street), in which he will talk about his transition from writer to director and his personal filmmaking style, and how it compares with others in the film industries of Egypt and in the U.S. This event is free and open to the public. To reserve a seat, email filmmaker360@sffs.org.

The fall 2013 Artist in Residence program with Mohamed Diab takes place from October 1-15.
