5th Final Cut in Venice, Italy. The Nominees
Leila Kilani, Hajooj Kuka, João Viana, Etienne Kallos, Naziha Arebi, Marouan Omara and Johanna Domke selected. Workshop on 3-5 Sept.

The Venice Film Festival's purpose is to provide concrete assistance in the completion of films from Africa and from Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, and Syria; and to offer producers and directors an opportunity to present films still in the production phase to international film professionals and distributors in order to facilitate post-production and promote co-production partnerships and market access.

The workshop consists of 3 days of activities, in which the working copies of the six selected films are screened to producers, buyers, distributors and film festival programmers. Networking, encounters and meetings will allow directors and producers to interact directly with the workshop participants.

The 5th edition of its workshop programme, Final Cut in Venice, taking place from September 3th to 5th, is organized by the Venice Production Bridge, in collaboration with Laser Film, Mactari Mixing Auditorium, Titra Film, Sub-Ti Ltd, Sub-Ti ACCESS Srl, Rai Cinema, El Gouna Film Festival, Festival International du Film d'Amiens, Festival International de Films de Fribourg, MAD Solutions, Eye on Films, and Institut Français.

The complete line-up:

1 - A Kasha by Hajooj Kuka (Sudan, South Africa, Qatar), fiction.
Production: Steven Markovitz (Refugee Club c/o)
A Kasha is a universal offbeat love story set in a time of civil war - but the war is in Sudan and it is happening right now. We follow Adnan, an AK47-loving rebel, his long-suffering love interest, Lina, and the army-dodging Absi, over a fateful 24 hours in a rebel-held area of Sudan.

2 - Joint Possession by Leila Kilani (Morocco, France, Qatar, UAE), fiction.
Production: Emmanuel Barrault (Dkb Productions)
Tangier's topography is in turmoil. Pharaonic real estate projects surround the Mansouria, a landlocked family estate, up for sale and coveted by Amina and her heirs. Suddenly fires lit up across the hills.

3 - Our Madness by João Viana (Mozambique, France, Portugal, Qatar), fiction.
Production: François d'Artemare (Les Films de l'Après-Midi)
Lucy is hospitalized in a psychiatric hospital in Mozambique. She dreams about her little son, Hanic, and her husband, Pak, who is a soldier of the war. One day, Lucy seizes the opportunity to run away from the hospital.

4 - The Harvesters by Etienne Kallos (South Africa, France, Greece, Poland), fiction.
Production: Sophie Erbs, Michael Auret and Thembisa Cochrane (Cinéma Defacto / Spier Films)
Jano is an obedient Afrikaans teenager whose childhood abruptly comes to an end when his Christian-fundamentalist parents bring a mysterious and manipulative orphan, Pieter, back from the city to their remote African farm to foster.

5 - Freedom Fields by Naziha Arebi (Libya, UK, Qatar), documentary.
Production: Flore Cosquer (SDI Productions Ltd)
In post-revolution Libya a group of women are brought together by one dream: to play football for their nation. But as the country descends into civil war, their personal stories of aspiration, love and struggle collide with History.

6- Dream Away by Marouan Omara and Johanna Domke (Egypt, Germany, Qatar), docufiction.
Production: Roman Roitman and Mark Lotfy (Monokel)
DREAM AWAY follows a group of young Egyptians, working in the terror-attack-shaken tourist hub Sharm El Sheikh, who are forced to redefine their future and their identity, lingering between the liberal life-style of the town and the traditional culture they originate from.
