Chaired by Prince Moulay Rachid of Morocco, the Marrakech International Film Festival (FIFM) aims to honour world cinema. Each year, a festival jury rewards the best Moroccan and foreign feature and short films. Film industry greats such as Martin Scorsese, Roman Polanski, Marion Cotillard and Jessica Chastain have all taken a place at the judging table in the past. This year, the jury is presided by none other than cinematic legend Francis Ford Coppola. The festival will take place from the 4th to the 12th of December.
