Some of the films are in English with French subtitles and some events will be held in English.
This year’s theme is: “Praising difference”.
“Praising difference simply means : live with and not against others! Cinema explores this obvious statement. It allows us to reach love, friendship, knowledge, and dreams,” says the festival’s Honorary President, Tahar Ben Jelloun, writer and member of the Académie Goncourt.
