Egyptian Critic Fawzi Soliman Died
FIPRESCI and the Egyptian Film Critics Association lost one of their oldest members, the veteran film critic Fawzi Soliman. He passed away at the age of 91.
Fawzi Soliman was one of the founders of the “Alexandria Mediterranean Film Festival”; he acted as the festival’s general secretary for five years. He was a board member of the Cairo Cine-Club, a foundation that enriched Egypt in the 60s and 70s with film lovers who became later prominent film critics.
He kept attending and covering film festivals until the last years of his life. At the age of 89, his readers could still enjoy his interesting coverage of the Karlovy Vary film festival, his favorite event that he kept attending (and serving sometimes as FIPRESCI juror) for four decades.
