“Representing ten countries from four continents, the jury of this XIX edition is, like the Marrakech International Film Festival, a manifestation that celebrates world cinema”reads the note.
In 2020 and 2021, the FIFM Foundation canceled the festival, but organized a virtual support program for young Moroccan, Arab and African filmmakers in order to explore international markets.
The last edition of this film event was held in 2019 and the film “So many souls” by Colombian director Ricardo Rincón Gille won the Gold Star, the festival’s highest award.
