Marrakech International Film Festival


As one can predict from previous blog postings, SHOWstudio representatives from NYC and London flew into Morocco this week to cover the Marrakech International Film Festival for

The festival, which is currently in it's 11th year, takes place between the 2nd and 11th December. Set under a seemingly ever-blue sky, the festivities have so far proved to be well organised and well visited, with talents and stars from the international cinema world visiting en masse.

SHOWstudio's team will not only blog about the happenings throughout the week, but we've also been busy interviewing selected directors and actors for our interview series Face Off. After meeting the controversial director Brillante Mendoza and the legendary Roland Joffe yesterday for our one to one interviews, we'll have the pleasure of meeting Oscar winning actor Forest Whitaker and cult director Terry Gilliam later today.

The hospitality of the event organisers and Moroccan people has been absolutely exceptional so far and we are extremely happy to be here. Keep track of the continuous coverage of the festival on throughout the week!
