Edgo is proud to be a sponsor of the Amman International Film Festival, which kicked off yesterday in Amman and runs until the end of the month. The first of its kind in Jordan, the festival showcases Arab and international movies and was established by the Royal Film Commission of Jordan.

The opening was attended by Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, the Chairman of the Royal Film Commission and his wife, Princess Rym Ali, President of the Amman International Film Festival. Princess Rym opened the event by addressing the audience on screen with a welcome note.

During the festival, films will be shown at drive-in screenings to ensure compliance with social distancing measures. Short and feature films will be screened at the festival and will include Between Heaven and Earth by renowned Palestiniaan director Najwa Najjar and You Will Die at Twenty by Sudanese director Amjad Abu Alala.

The festival’s drive-in film screening will take place in the Boulevard, close to the Edgo Atrium, Edgo’s landmark headquarters in the heart of the Abdali district of the Jordanian capital.
