NEW YORK—Technicolor PostWorks New York congratulates Cairo Drive, director Sherief Elkatasha’s heartwarming documentary set in Egypt’s capital, on winning the Viewfinders Competition Grand Jury Prize at this year’s DOC NYC film festival.

Technicolor-PostWorks, a Signature Sponsor of the festival, provided color grading and editorial finishing services for Cairo Drive, which documents the struggles motorists face in navigating the city’s incredibly clogged streets. Bobbie Thomas performed the final grade. The film was mixed at PostWorks, New York.

Completing its fifth year, DOC NY is the country’s largest film festival devoted to documentary films, this year including more than 150 films and events and 100 special guests. “We congratulate Sherief and all the winners at what was the best DOC NYC fest to date,” said Technicolor-PostWorks COO Rob DeMartin.
