The Film Festival has set the stage to showcase on an international screen Morocco’s voices, multiculturalism and filmmakers. The two-day Festival event will show the complexity and beauty of life in Morocco through ten feature films, preceded by Moroccan student films from the Ecole Supérieure des Arts Visuels de Marrakech.
The generous sponsorships of the Festival by the Moroccan National Tourist Office and Exotic Imports enable ALL ticket sales to support community fruit tree nurseries of varieties that do not require pesticides and that profoundly benefit rural families. The High Atlas Foundation was founded in 2000 by former Peace Corps Volunteers, and planted with many partners 329,800 fruit trees benefiting approximately 2,500 Moroccan families.
