EDITORIAL His Royal Highness Prince MOULAY RACHID

This year the Marrakech International Film Festival (MIFF) will celebrate its 7th anniversary.

True, the venue is considered today " and rightly so " as a major driving force and a platform for the development of Moroccan cinema. But this year the Festival also wants to help and support the men and women behind films.

This is why I will be honoured to launch the Marrakech Graduate School of Visual Arts at the 7th edition of the MIFF, hoping that it will soon help develop and expand our budding film industry.

This is also why I will be thrilled to lay the first stone of the headquarters of the MIFF Foundation in order to strengthen the wonderful love story between an art form (film) and a city (Marrakech) in a country deeply rooted in its history and definitely embarking on a modernization effort.

Let the 7th edition celebrate films from the whole world, which will, with their uncertainties, convictions and hopes, broaden our perspective and help us build the future.

HRH PRINCE MOULAY RACHID
President of the Foundation of MIFF
