Egyptian writer Wahid Hamed is one of the early birds at Diff tonight.

“I’ve been affected by every film I’ve seen, even the bad ones. A scriptwriter can learn something from every movie he sees,” said Wahid Hamed, Lifetime Achievement honoree, on the question of which film impacted him most in his youth.
