Travelling Film Festival: Morocco

Tour Morocco’s grand sights, famous movie locations, and motion picture studios while enjoying evening screenings and discussions about famous films shot in and around the most scenic, historic, and fascinating areas of the country.

Celebrate a selection of the best and most famous international and local films that have been shot in the most scenic, historic, and culturally fascinating areas of the country. Clips and/or full screenings of films will include the first film ever made in the Kingdom by the Lumière Brothers in 1897, through famous works of art by western directors such as David Lean’s Lawrence of Arabia and Hitchcock’s The Man Who Knew Too Much, James Bond and Jason Bourne blockbusters, and historical show stoppers such as Alexander and Gladiator. These will be interspersed with beautiful, often touching and funny historic and contemporary works by Moroccan directors and writers such as Horses of God and Road to Kabul, revealing the heart and soul of the country.

Presentations will include discussions on the use of Moroccan locations by international filmmakers to create stories situated in diverse locations as well as a myriad of fantasy and fanciful historic settings. We’ll be treated to studio visits and a camel trip to long-lost film sets in the desert and, as a bonus, tours of the spectacular contemporary settings of television productions like Game of Thrones and Homeland.

This tour will be guided in spirit by the location scouts, cinematographers, and directors of some of the most compelling films ever made. We just follow their lead!
