The latter took home the award.

The Cygolden awardCO is worth $US 50,000. The judging committee of the festival is comprised of various Arab actors, the president of the judging committee Duraid Laham, and representatives Elham Shaheen, Claudia Marshlian, Bahyeh Rashdi, Muhammad Muftah, Orfan Rashid and the director and the manager of Dubai cinema festival Masoud Amer Allah Ali.A[umlaut] 2008 Al Bawaba (www.albawaba.com)
