The 29th edition of “Journées Cinématographiques de Carthage” (Carthage Film Festival) closed in Tunis on November 11th with three AFAC-supported documentary films walking away with the three Tanit awards.
Mohamed Siam’s “Amal” (Egypt) picked up the Golden Tanit, while Amal Ramsis’ “You Come From Far Away” (Egypt) won the Silver Tanit, and Ghassan Halwani’s debut film “Erased____ Ascent of the Invisible” (Lebanon) collected the Bronze Tanit.
In addition to the three winning films, another seven AFAC-supported films participated in the Festival including: Talal Derki’s “Of Fathers and Sons” (Syria), “Divine Wind” by Algerian director Merzak Allouache, “Weldi” by Tunisian director Mohamed Ben Attia, “Thin Line” by Faouzi Djemal (Tunisia), “Screwdriver” by Bassam Jarbawi (Palestine), “Railway Men” by Tunisian director Erige Sehiri, and “The Journey” by Mohamed Al Daradji.
