TANGIER – Morocco’s northern city of Tangier is hosting October 26-29 the fourth edition of the Europe Orient Documentary Film Festival.

This cultural event, organized by The Moroccan Association of Media Studies and Documentaries, has chosen Tangier with the aim of supporting the civilisational message conveyed in the festival taking into consideration the focus on the relationship between the Orient and Europe.

Tangier will enable the Festival to become a major cultural event that attracts so many festival-goers from Morocco and abroad because of its diverse range of creativities through documentaries, promoting tourism, enhancing both the eastern and western cultures, and celebrating multiculturalism.

This year’s edition will honour Maria Rosa de Madariaga the historian and the former international civil servant at UNESCO, Amina Ajana the pioneer of Tangier Radio, and Moroccan journalist and film director Mohamed EL Bouanani.

These honours are part of the festival’s program that will be launched Wednesday in Ahmad Boukmakh Cultural Center where ten documentary films will be screened as part of the competition.

In addition to screening films, the four-day festival will feature an international conference about “the Tenses of Narration, from Novel to the Documentary “ and a round table discuss “the Development and the Production of the Film Documentary Strategy” as well as three workshops and a gallery of the old cinema posters.
