MOROCCO AND THE MARRAKECH INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL: A CINEMATOGRAPHIC CROSSROADS OF CREATIVITY AND MOVING IMAGE
In 17 years, the Marrakech International Film Festival has managed to find its place in the international calendar of major film events. It is now seen as a key gathering for filmmaking talent, industry executives and audiences from the Middle East and Africa and beyond, bringing together top-notch programming — including audacious discoveries and prestigious tributes — professional screening facilities, a warm welcome, and respectful audiences eager to share their passion for cinema. Through this Festival they host, Marrakech and Morocco have together remained true to their ambitions of creating a land of promotion for local, national and international cinema: a land of film production.
