The Cairo Residence

Develop your project embraced by ancient history and lively modernity of the capital of Egypt.

Experience the time and eras layered in one place. Explore the wonders of the ancient world, feel the heat and cold of the Sahara Desert, chill in the trendy bars of the Zamalek and Heliopolis neighbourhoods, or take some time to relax over a cup of tea, to wander the ancient streets and to watch the sun lower over the mighty Nile River. Cairo is a city of many wonders and inspirations.

Soak it in and don`t hesitate to reach out to your host, script consultant and film producer Ayman El Amir.
