The Marrakech International Film Festival Foundation held its board meeting and General Assembly on June 30, 2017, and the decision to reschedule the 17th edition of the Festival in 2018 was taken. This period was used to rethink the Festival and create a dynamic of change, with a new organisational structure and new tools, appropriate to the digital world, in order to serve the vision of the Festival and to achieve its ambitions. New goals have been set to allow the Festival to go further in its mission: not only the promotion of the Moroccan cinematographic industry, but also the opening of a window onto other cultures, which is one of the primary powers of the Seventh Art.
