Festival Presentation

The Marrakech International Film Festival was created  in 2001 by His Majesty King Mohammed VI to promote arts and the film industry in Morocco.

Renewing the dialogue between talents and intellects, encouraging diversity and building bridges between different cultures and countries, the Marrakech International Film Festival has become a crossroad where great national and international actors, producers, film makers and directors are gathered every year .

Personalities from the seventh art from all over the world compose our jurys, important delegations are present for the tributes to their countries, a large number of diversified films are shown to the public. All this and more allows the Festival to become an iconic event in the world of cinema and Morocco is now a privileged destination for major movie productions.

The programming, tributes, masterclasses, audio description films for the visually impaired and projections on the main square of Jemaa El Fna have contributed to make the Marrakech International Film Festival a place where dreams, art and civic engagement coexist in harmony.
