Algiers hosts first Maghreb Cultural Film Fest

The first Maghreb Cultural Film Festival will enjoy its last day Friday. Beginning Sunday, the festival screened 11 Algerian films, 10 Tunisian films, 10 Moroccan films and four Mauritanian films — each competing to win a “Golden Amayyas” award (Amayyas means leopard in the Tamazight language).

The festival aim to “introduce recent productions from the Maghreb film-making world, its iconic movie-makers, its themes and developments to the public,” reports Magharebia.

The festival includes feature-length films, short fiction films and documentaries from all the Maghreb countries except Libya. Libya, however, is represented on the jury and at round-table discussions.
