Amr Waked steals the show across the pond
While popular singers have thrown themselves into the talent show craze as judges helping to find upcoming stars, the Arab world's favorite actors don't want to miss out on the action.
And, in typical celeb fashion, Amr isn't happy just judging the event - his film 'Al Shita Elli Phat' (Last Winter) will also be screened at the festival.
And that's not all - in case this wasn't enough Amr for festival-goers, the film will be screened twice - during the 'World Cinema' and 'A Look at Middle Eastern Cinema' sections.
But, to stop Amr taking over the entire show, the film - which has already been widely celebrated at festivals across the world - will not be part of the competition itself.
