ElCinema.com Is the first online database archiving information about Egyptian and Arab cinema. The comprehensive data provided on the site is collected by its users and readers who are encouraged to participate. The database is an interesting concept in Egypt. Several efforts in the past to document and archive the history of Egypt's rich motion picture industry using common methods like an encyclopedia have fizzled. This online presence might be the best solution to preserve this history. The site provides the data in Arabic for now. There is no information that indicates the site might be published in other languages.
