As part of the three years partnership announced in 2016 between The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture- AFAC and FIDMarseille’s FIDLab, each year an AFAC-supported project will be selected to be part of this international coproduction platform, which offers a meeting place for discussing film projects selected from all over the world.
For the 9th edition, the project MY FRIEND GADHGADHI by Rafik Omrani, produced by Majez Films, from Tunisia, has been selected to participate to the FIDLab 2017. The director will have the opportunity to present his project to an international audience and compete for a number of awards during the upcoming 28th edition of FIDMarseille (July 11-17). This project received an AFAC grant in 2016.
Last year, tow AFAC-supported projects- Ouroboros by Basma Al Sharif and The Last of Us by Alaeddine Slim- participated in FIDLab and won awards.
