Venice International Film Gala

The Venice International Film Gala started on the 12th of October & till the 15th of October, We were lucky enough to attend this event & watch the winners get awarded. Adding pleasure to the Egyptian people that the main actors of the award winning international film in the world renowned Venice International Film Festival are retired Egyptian Ambassador Dr.Hadi ElTonsi & Spouse Mrs.Fatima Abdallah

 

The info sent by “The Messenger” film director sent to the festival coordinator: “Dr. Mohamed Hadi ElTonsi and Fatima Abdallah, will attend the festival, Dr. Hadi is the main actor, and he is a psychiatrist with psychic ability. Between him and his wife Fatima they speak 10 languages. Although Italian is not one of the languages, they both speak fluent Spanish so hopefully they can understand better than I ever could. Although “the Messenger” is a fiction film, it was inspired by Dr. Eltonsi’ special skills. I passed the information directly to them so they can contact festival and make travel arrangements.”
