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.
