Morocco: Agadir to host inaugural Fida Doc’Souss festival

From 4 to 8 November 2008, the International Documentary Festival Fida Doc’Souss will be held in Agadir, Morocco. The Festival aims to become a forum for debate and dialogue between North and South documentary-makers, with the aspiration of further fostering the passion for documentaries by bringing together filmgoers, students, experts and the general public.

The films selected will come from various parts of the world, ranging from the Maghreb to the Middle East and from Latin America to Asia and Europe, and will be in different languages and represent diverse cultures.

The four main themes will be: the environment, social issues, sports and arts and music. The screening schedule will be divided into two sections: an international competition with recent films produced in 2007 or 2008, and a parallel section put together in collaboration with various associations, universities and institutions in the region.

For films to participate in the Festival, they must be over 26 minutes in length and produced in 2007 or 2008, either in English or in French, and should be submitted in DVD format by no later than 1 August 2008 to:
Nezha Drissi – 72 Quai de Jemmapes – 75010 Paris
