THE MARRAKECH SHORT FILM FESTIVAL IN MOROCCO’S MYTHICAL FILM THEATERS

As the date of the fourth edition of the MARRAKECH FILM FESTIVAL approaches (27 of September to October 2nd), the festival continues to connect the greater public with short films throughout the year.

During its festival week, the MARRAKECHsFF is a meeting point for cinema professionals and its young enthusiasts under the palm trees of Marrakech, featuring outdoor screenings filled with the magic of open air, short films, and the dreams of young directors aspiring for professionalization and recognition, all in iconic locations of the ochre city such as the Palais Badii, the Jardin Moulay Abdeslam, and others.

The word “mythical” accompanies this year’s BEST OF program from the previous edition, a curated program of award-winning films at Cannes/Clermont Ferrant/Festival de Tanger, screened in historic cinemas across Morocco.

Short films from Morocco/Palestine/Greece/Poland/Egypt/Cyprus have traveled through the kingdom, being hosted in recent months at the legendary Cinéma Renaissance in Rabat and the Cinéma Alcazar in Tangier. For the next stop, the BEST OF program will be hosted at Cinéma Lutetia, inaugurated in the early 1950s and renovated in 2019, a venue that has maintained its activity for more than 74 years without interruption. An example of cultural activism that we highlight during the MARRAKECHsFF week with awareness visits to abandoned cinemas in Marrakech in partnership with the Save Cinemas In Morocco association.

Cinema lovers from Casablanca will have a meeting on Thursday, May 9th, at 7:30 PM in the legendary hall of Cinema Lutetia with 4 short films from the previous selection of MARRAKECHsFF: from Morocco with the film “Voilà” by director Gabriel Navarro featuring the revelation of Ramadan 2024, the talented Marie-Batoul Prenant, and the film “The Road” by director Munir Abbar, Belarj Prize (Best Director Award) at MARRAKECHsFF 2023 starring Younes Bouab, Fahd Benchamsi, and Abdellatif Chaouqi / from Palestine with the film “A’Alam” by Saleh Saadi selected at the prestigious Holly Short Film Festival (Oscars qualifier) / from Poland with the film “Victoria” by Karolina Porcari, Silver Dragon award winner at the Krakow Film Festival. A program that the MARRAKECH SHORT FILM FESTIVAL offers you in partnership with Cinema Lutetia on May 9th at 7:30 PM.
