Ebeid’s career spans almost 60 years with a roster of achievements in both film and television.
Aswan International Women Film Festival will honour Egyptian actress Nabila Ebeid at its seventh edition, which will take place from March 5-10, 2023, in Aswan.
AIWFF aims to recognise female achievement in filmmaking and to teach the craft to youth through workshops and screenings.
Ebeid is an actress and producer, known for Al-Mara’a wa Al-Satour (1996), Qahwet al mawardy (1982) and Wa la yazal al tahqiq mostameran (1979).
AIWFF’s vice chairman Azza Kamel announced that this recognition is in honour of Ebeid’s iconic role on the golden era of Egyptian and Arab silver screen, when she presented films that discussed a great deal about women’s issues.
She was first introduced to Egyptian Cinema by the Egyptian film director Atef Salem in a movie called Mafish Faida. In 1965, she starred with Omar Sharif in The Mamluks, a role which was described as her “first steps to fame”.
In 1967, she co-starred with Salah Zulfikar in the political play Rubabikya (Robabekya). She has also starred in the television dramas El-Ammah Nour (Aunt Nour) and El-Bawaba El-Taniya (The Second Gate).
