Red Star for Production and Distribution is a leading Egyptian filmmaking company in the Middle East market.

Founded in 2014, Red Star Films, is an Egyptian company that took solid steps towards bridging the gap between independent and commercial films with an outlook that constantly chooses innovation over guaranteed profit, we take pride in establishing a reputation for being a non-conforming entity, constantly pushing the dictates of the local market and the mainstream culture that goes with it.
Propping first time script writers and directors and dealing with controversial topics has been the path we learned a lot from. With a repertoire of 18 films reaping 60 awards from various international film festivals, we created a milieu in which young filmmakers put forth and exhibit their own distinctive visions with the support of more experienced cast and crew members.
In recent years, Red Star Films has been pushing the local boundaries further, co-producing Iraqi, Sudanese, Syrian, Palestinian and Saudi films. In appealing to a wider audience through creatively reflecting on the social dynamics of various cultures, we hope to shed light on intersectionality. There is an infinite amount of stories that need to be told and we try to play an accumulative role in that intricate process. We seek to work alongside people who are interested in the Global South and who believe that certain issues are transnational whatever color they take.
