The Marrakech International Film Festival was created in 2001 by King Mohammed VI. The event is organized by the Marrakech Film Festival Foundation under the chairmanship of HRH Prince Moulay Rachid.
A key cinema event in Morocco and on the international stage, the festival brings together important figures from the world of the arts, culture and media. Through the years, the festival has attracted some of the most famous names in cinema from around the world.
The festival sets itself apart through quality programming and a unique artistic and editorial positioning which fosters openness to all forms of cinema. It is also a hot spot for young local talent thanks to its Cinécoles competition which awards the best short films from Moroccan cinema students.
It was an emotional evening at the Congress Palace tonight during the Closing & Palmares Ceremony. The winners of this 16th edition were awarded with 5 prestigious prizes.
